    BMX by City of Satellites http://www.cityofsatellites.com The stunning opening track from their debut album Machine Is My Animal, 'BMX' unfolds in a magisterial swirl of synths and hovering atmospherics, driven by Thomas Diakomichalis' propulsive, detailed drumming and Jarrod Manuel's pure vocal tones. Part misty paean to lost youth, part anthem for a better future, 'BMX' is premium 21st-century pop. The sumptuous hypnotic sci-fi visuals of the accompanying video distill the haunting, angelic feeling of the song, drawing from its ethereal lyrical plays. A group of lost space invaders is drawn towards a gleaming orb in a forest, while a BMX rider (champion German BMX wizard Michael Steingraeber) is becoming unified with light in an abandoned warehouse. Award winning Australian director and visual effects artist Dael Oates has created an absolute visual feast with this music video. 'BMX' video director Dael Oates spent several years at the Academy Award-winning visual effects company Animal Logic, working as a compositor, designer and art director on feature films and commercials before joining Prodigy Films, where he directs spots and campaigns for major brands in Australia. His work has earned him a Kodak Young Director of the Year Award. He is also a director on the Mothership roster, a sister company to Digital Domain in LA. Dael also recently co-founded The Yard, an artist collective focused on street photography, and he is a prolific contributor to its body of work.
