When the Grimm Brothers wrote their famed collection of Fairy Tales, they were criticized for being too dark and violent. In AlunaGeorge’s new video for “Attracting Flies”, the British future-pop duo imagine what some of those tales and other famous stories would look like in a modern setting, and the results would’ve caused 19th century critics to drop a brick. There’s Snow White and the Seven Young Hooldums, Goldilocks and the Three Leather-Clad Bears, Beauty and the Doberman, and even Sleeping Beauty and the Battle with Anti-Depressants. Check out the Emil Nava-directed clip below.
AlunaGeorge’s debut, Body Music, is out July 1st on Island Records.
