The video for Janelle Monae’s “Many Moons” is a lengthy affair that recalls Metropolis and George Michael’s “Freedom 90,” with the droid-obsessed R & B singer taking on multiple mechanical personas while waxing apocalyptic about the planet’s future. It’s pretty arresting, with Monae’s manic dancing in particular underscoring the desperation that lurks underneath all the surface glamour. (Not to mention that the source material for the song’s hook is pretty undeniable.) [YouTube]
