Edit: Are we not counting this as a solo release because it was on a soundtrack?
24 hours later, watching it again, still can’t get over how good this is–a perfect combination of visual and sound. I need to look at the people who worked on this, because it’s pinging some associations. Has anyone here seen Under The Skin? That same kind of skin-bag animation…
Very nice. Revisits the Beetlejuice/Men-in-Black four note march. And yes the cgi does appear to be based on Elfman’s physiognomy…

Thank you. I’ve heard the name, and thought it was cool, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to any Beta Band stuff. Quickly, Robin! To Spotify!
One of my old faves. Enjoy!
Can we get a flashing lights warning? I’m with RJMeelar on this.
Beta Band are so soooooo good.
I saw Steve Mason (ex Beta lead singer) live a couple of times last year, his newer work is equally impressive - “About the Light” is a cracking album with lots of gems like this:
I had not known this was a thing, now I know it is a thing. Thank you!.
