Starfucker Take Their "Medicine"

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 11:58 AM

Fresh from their brand new sorta-LP Jupiter, Starfucker has released the video for their lead single, "Medicine."

From the press release:

"The concept behind Starfucker's new video 'Medicine' was to extract and canonize the best and most recurrent elements from a typical hip hop video scenario; flashy dancers, big cars, intense focus on the artist, and a loose story line revolving around money and some sort of conflict," says director Andrew Sloan. "We took these motifs and stylized them in a way that was more relevant to the song whilst still keeping the feel of the video big, and flashy. The video should feel familiar, but with a certain layer of grit screwing up the picture."

While I think the video is a lot of fun, I didn't really get that vibe at all. Huh, guess I need to watch more Sucker Free.
