Houston Popstar Duo Space Kiddettes Sparkle In “Low Impact Aerobics” Music Video
Space Kiddettes premiered their shimmering 80s-inspired music video for their brand new single “Low Impact Aerobics” last week, which was directed by Chris McElroy and co-directed by Michael Cotaya.
Hot off the presses and freshly cut from the upcoming E.P., DOMESTIC ADVENTURES, Houston-based electro-dance-pop duo, Space Kiddettes, unleashed their latest bop, “Low Impact Aerobics.” The song has an uplifting, crystalline-synth sound that reminds the listener of artists such as Devo, Duran Duran, and Erasure. An updated spin on Jane Fonda, at-home workout VHS tapes, the music video captures the campy, inspirational smiles, “blood, sweat, and tears” that can be seen in Netflix’s Original Series GLOW, as well as in The Knife’s iconic video for their classic 2003 hit “You Take My Breath Away.”
Space Kiddettes hope to give viewers high-results with “Low Impact Aerobics”.
Speaking on the message of the video, co-singer and instrumentalist Trent Lira “wanted [the music video] to be fun and dancey with an 80s, new wave, and dance-pop vibe. Lyrically and thematically, in the video, we wanted to draw parallels between how people treat mental and physical health and how they can work in tandem. Knowing that if you are struggling you can make it through and trying to keep grounded in difficult times [sic]. We wanted [the video] to be campy and fun, juxtaposed with an edge of dissatisfaction on our faces”
Singer and front-femme Devin Will “wanted to create something that really embodies Space Kiddettes: surreal, tongue-in-cheek, and vaguely nostalgic. “I think we draw on a lot of nostalgia while at the same time mocking how ridiculous some of the trends of the past (and present) are. My biggest hope is that some geek out there sees our work and says, ‘Thank God there’s someone as weird as me.’”
This is the debut music video by Space Kiddettes with more accompanying videos coming soon to continue the story in this album cycle. DOMESTIC ADVENTURES will be arriving on November 2nd. Check out the glam-tastic video below:
