Chvrches 'Under the Tide' Anime Inspired Video

Anime is everywhere these days, back when I was a nipper it was rare as hens teeth to see this artform in the public eye but here we are in 2014 and it is definitely overground. In 'Under the Tide', the Scottish Electronics band Chvrches have a music video that focuses on an astronaut, who is separated from his love interest because he is saving the world from danger. The video cuts between the unfolding drama in space, a purplish lit man singing and a flashy clubby light show. The video is cool but it also reminded me of the classic anime Macross Plus, when Isamu is in his YF-19 and is off to save Myung but is almost hypnotised by Sharon Apple. Have a look at both the videos and tell me what you think!
