[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Marshall Magic Takes Us on a Spacey Disco Desert Voyage in “The View” Video

marshall-magic-2019

Drawing inspiration from Daft Punk’s animated sci-fi short films, dance/pop duo Marshall Magic soundtrack a space explorer’s voyage into the desert in their new video for “The View.” Starring a spacey secret agent character, the stylish visual piece follows her journey after discovering a cassette player with “The View” all queued up. The video follows up Lucas Macaluso and Jarrod Morgan’s Marshall Magic EP that also features site-favorite single “Diamond Fool.”

Filmed in Topanga Canyon near Malibu, CA and small desert town Daggett, CA, the music video recalls how Star Trek frequently filmed in the California desert. Macaluso says, “I was born in Las Vegas, NV, and have always thought the Mojave Desert scenery to be very thought-provoking. There’s something about its barrenness and stark contrast to the other parts of the country that is fascinating to me. It really looks like another part of the world—even another planet.”

“We are heavily influenced by all the short films Daft Punk have produced to coincide with their albums,” Macaluso says, “and for this we sorta combined concepts from both ‘Interstella 5555′ and ‘Electroma,’ deriving contact with aliens in the former, and the location/scenery of the west in the latter.” The full realization of this vision is brought to life by Marshall Magic’s creative friend circle. Christine Estes stars in the piece, Sam Vins, who works under the moniker greywood, filmed the entire video, and Ben Kozak co-produced.
