Love her voice, can take a bit of gettin used to, but had the album for a while. Saying this I've always loved weird electro.

I have never heard of Crystal Castles before. I will think about what I saw for awhile. I am not such a big fan of Techno but I remain open to new things.

What are the people in uniform supposed to be? An army? I just could not tell from watching the video. And the message of the video? Air War? Sorry I do not understand. Perhaps you can help me.

The guys in the video are cossacks, dancing was seen as a form of regimental show, so they would work together and it would be very structured and regimented.

As for what the song is about, have no real idea on that one. Its music it has a good tune, and its kinda fun to watch. Enjoy it for what it is, no point reading to much into it as it spoils the experience.

I love them but I've been meaning to properly listen to them for a long time now.

Air War, Magic Spells and Celestica are amazing songs.
