ASTR’s “Blue Hawaii” Video: Idolator Premiere

1ee9bc26b90f7b1254e2a5265e6c643f ASTR’s “Blue Hawaii” Video: Idolator Premiere

Don’t look now, but ASTR‘s penchant for Miami Vice and colorful ’80s imagery is showing. The New York electro-pop duo, comprised of members Zoe Silverman and Adam Pallin, recently collaborated with director Luke Choi on their video for Varsity EP single “Blue Hawaii” — pick up the song for a mere 69 cents now at iTunes and the Amazon MP3 store — and in the visual, the pair pose with pink flamingos, palm trees standing against a pink-hued sky and a unicorn perched underneath a rainbow.

ASTR collectively explains “Blue Hawaii” (which cleverly interpolates Black Box‘s early ’90s Italo house jam “Everybody Everybody”) and its accompanying visual to Idolator this way: “‘Blue Hawaii’ centers around the idea of escaping reality to a tropical paradise and cashing out. Ever since we wrote the song we had dreamed of what the video would look like. We had a blast making it and playing ourselves and a sleuth of random characters intermixed w some quirky tacky after effects. The end result is a cheeky expression of life with no regrets and no responsibilities.”

Director Luke Choi adds, “The song had such an amazing vibe I was immediately drawn to it. It was such a fun process. We all (myself and the band) came up with the idea together. When you have so much fun, the result is always something special.”
