Braindance – Lost: A Video Breakdown
Why did someone have to find this?
Today’s video breakdown comes to us courtesy of our old robot pal, CyberneticOrganism. Rest in Mango Habanero sauce, Cybro.
Braindance is a progressive darkwave/goth band that have been kicking around since the early 90’s. I can safely say that I don’t really know much about the band or that scene on my own, but I definitely understand the appeal. Dark dance music that’s heavy on the imagery and performance. Of course, it’s not 1994 anymore. Scenes and sounds have changed many, many times over the past two decades. Someone forgot to tell Braindance. Someone also forgot to tell the director of this music video.
