It’s spent the entire month of July at No.1 on the ARIA singles chart, so it’s obvious to all and sundry that there’s going to be more than a little bit of interest in the video for Avicii’s monster smash ‘Wake Me Up’.
The Swedish superstar DJ’s single is currently sporting a platinum accreditation (70,000 copies) after only six weeks on the chart. And there’s no way that the official video (released early yesterday) isn’t going to add to the hype.
Two sisters, both with matching markings; stuck in the midst of a dead-end town filled with dead-end people traipsing dead-end streets. One decides there has to be more to life, hops on a horse to see what awaits in the outside world. She finds others with the same markings and she knows she’s home.
She goes back to retrieve the other sister and they (presumably) all live happily ever after.
