Starkey feat. Charli XCX - "Lost in Space" (video)

by Timothy Gabriele

23 June 2011

 

This new Starkey song goes through so many phases in four minutes, it’s almost a mini-epic. Starkey’s Paul Geissinger experimented with Auto-Tune quite a bit on his underrated 2010 release Ear Drums and Black Holes, but rarely has he sounded so close to the Drake/Weeknd zeitgeist as he does here. The appearance of Charli XCX in some kind of freeform floating words liminal space is an explosive entry for Geissinger’s lonely astronaut in the video. As everything blows up around the two, it’s clear Starkey has delivered the goods again.
