Video: Polinksi – “Stitches” (Feat. Big Black Delta)

on October 19, 2011, 6:48am

A Cluster 1 Premiere!

Recent crime-solving video games like L.A. Noire have seen grand success with their intricate story-lines and highly detailed, modern graphics. Electro rocker Polinski, aka the side-project of 65daysofstatic frontman Paul Wolinski, hasn’t forgotten the granddaddies of games like that, though, and with his new video for “Stitches” (featuring Big Black Delta), he’s crafted one incredible homage.

Forgoing all the bells and whistles of current technology, Polinski, along with director/writer Caspar Newbolt and director/animator Josiah Newbolt (some relation), gives us an old-school text adventure detective story. Murdered dames, trippy visions, and ominous clues surround Detective Polinski as self-typing texts scrolls through an engaging mystery. Mostly stationary graphics outline the story as it’s played out by a man, presumably Wolinski himself, seen only in the reflection of an antiquated tube TV set.

Having already stated the 70s and 80s sci-fi influence on his upcoming debut, Polinski’s early video game theme might be logically foreseeable, but no less bad-ass. Be sure to check out our previous taste of that effort, Labryinths, in the form of the album track “Tangents”. The record is out stateside November 7th via Monotreme Records.
