The Telephones Love Them Some Color In New “2010” Clip


Break out the weed glasses for the new “2010” video by The Telephones. A lot of colors flash around and all sorts of animals pop up and then they dissolve into rainbow orbs (?) and it’s all pretty cool, way more so than my lame drug joke up there made it seem. The clip works pretty well with “2010” the song, The Telephones slightly vague call-to-arms for a “new generation.” The lyrics go for a sorta fuzzy “yeah go us!” vibe full of fluffy sentences like “life is beautiful” or talkin’ about “happy life.” It sounds silly, but the band manages to pull it off thanks to a typically energetic delivery style that makes this song way more urgent than the hippy-dippy words imply. Watch some colors above.
