♫♪  PillowTalk - “Heaven’s Gate”

PillowTalk’s video, I think, speaks for itself. But from where does this dazzling specimen hail? Rather than exhaustive exegesis, here’s a brief etymology — rooted in the style of early TV broadcast, complimentary angles, and soft focus — illustrating just how we’ve arrived at heaven’s gate. The lineage, as you’ll see, is sterling.

- Nancy Sinatra, “These Boots Were Made for Walkin’”
- David Bowie, “Ashes to Ashes”
- The Strokes, “Last Night”
- Outkast, “Hey Ya!”
- Duck Sauce, “Anyway”
- Thieves Like Us, “Never Known Love”
- Future Islands, “Give Us the Wind”
- Beyoncé, “Party”
- Destroyer, “Kaputt”

PillowTalk has a new EP, Far From Heaven, out now on Wolf + Lamb.
