Adelaide electro-pop duo Nakatomi have released a new single in “The Knife”, a great introduction to lovers of synths, beats and throwbacks to some glorious neon-drenched 80s flair. The film clip, directed by Aaron Schuppan, shares this distinctly 80’s vibe, embracing a sci-fi/Blade Runner type quality to the narrative. No schtick, all quality – click through to check it out!
Of the film clip, Nakatomi’s Emily Smart has said:
“We had this idea to go with a sci-fi 80s vibe for this clip, so we contacted a great local film director named Aaron Schuppan and set him the challenge to create something inspired by movies such as Blade Runner. Thankfully Aaron was just as excited about this idea as we were and proposed that our film clip take the form of a movie trailer for an amazing, lost tech-noir film from the 80s, but something with genuine emotion at its core. Aaron threw together a crazy script, and our only thought was, if he can pull this off, this is going to be epic!”
