Pretty impressed by this deftly edited, Dan Flavin-meets-Grace Jones fantasia that video artist Grant Worth cooked up in collaboration with Brooklyn's Light Asylum, whose '80s-throwback power ballads ride heavily on the fierce charisma of lead singer Shannon Funchess. A bit foggy as to what this production is "about", but what better way to capture the excess and hyperbole of that halcyon era than riffing on crucifixion in a dance anthem, and recasting the pietà as a half-naked woman holding a bundle of neon glow sticks?
