My beloved Owl City just released a video for “Alligator Sky” from his forthcoming album, All Things Bright and Beautiful. Love, love, love the video, but I’m not sure how I feel about the addition of rapper Shawn Chrystopher, but the more I listen to it, the more I like the “rap” part. Conceptually, I think it works to have the two different “voices” of the astronauts communicating to each other. Plus, the “Alligator Sky” video definitely has a dystopian feel that is so hot in YA literature right now.
For even more Owl City love, check out this post in which Adam Young (he’s basically Owl City) discusses his faith in God and learn more about All Things Bright and Beautiful releasing on June 14.
So, gang, what do you think of “Alligator Sky”? Like the song? Like the music video? Like alligators?
