sun airway 'wild palms' unofficial video — starring christopher walken

Philadephia’s Sun Airway have a vinyl 7″ coming out July 19 on Dead Oceans. The a-side is “Wild Palms” and “Symphony In White, No. 2” is on the b-side. It’s the band’s first release since last year’s promising debut Nocturne Of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, and features more of their blissful 80’s romanticism.

There’s an unofficial video for “Wild Palms” that’s worth a look. It uses the 1983 sci-fi thriller Brainstorm as source material, which stars a young Christopher Walken as the bespectacled inventor of a mind reading device:

Random bit of Hollywood trivia, Brainstorm was the last screen appearance of Natalie Wood, who drowned off the coast of Catalina Island before the film was complete. Netflix, anyone?
