The xx Drop Creepy Yet Amazing “Sunset” Remix Video: Watch

This Is Really Weird.

If David Lynch produced an episode of American Idol in 1973, it would probably look a little something like The xx‘s creepy “Sunset” remix video. And I mean that as a compliment. Pieced together from old talent show footage, the compulsively watchable six-minute opus is the perfact match for Jamie xx’s eerie interpretation of the band’s already unsettling Coexist highlight. It’s odd and disturbing but strangely beautiful and ultimately poetic. Just like the song.

Who is this woman? I’d like to think she went on to have a stellar career as a Solid Gold dancer. If you have any info on her hopefully magnificent destiny, let us know in the comments below.

    This singer is Lizzy Mercier Descloux, a French artist who had some success in the late 70′s/early 80′s.
    The show is a very popular show at the time Midi Première, hosted by Daniele Gilbert (the blond woman seen at the beginning) and that day, the main guest was French iconic superstar Serge Gainsbourg (also seen at the beginning).
