Balloons

Nu-rave track 'Balloons' sees electro-pop duo Actual Russian Brides experimenting with helium-influenced vocals, while producer Baby Swindle grinds the crank on that street organ. The music video takes the tiny sound of helium as inspiration for a miniaturizing of scale, and the mouse mentioned in the lyrics as a fashion/body modification springboard. What is also tiny? The budget. This stylish video was shot and post-produced on a mouse's shoestring, on the floor of its messy bedroom shared with the other mice.

'Balloons' is the third track from EP 'Wife Beats', the second solo release by Actual Russian Brides. The EP features danceable tracks fused with darkly witty and seductive storytelling.
