Cape Town’s afro-pop collective Freshlyground comes with a surrealist black-and-white video for “Take Me To The Dance,” the infectious electronic single off their latest album of the same name. The visuals kick off with a possessed child drenched in glitter and proceed to follow lead singer Zolani Mahola through a labrynth of boys with unnaturally-wide eyes, muscular cross-dressers and a topless rollerblader, among many others. It all kinda plays like David Lynch’s dream party. Watch the Samuel Coleman-directed video below and grab Take Me To The Dance.

This is a disgusting copy of Lark ‘Stole the Moon’ and Spoek ‘Control’

    Because control is black and white and the similarity between ‘stole the moon’ is?

    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.” Jim Jarmusch
