The video for “Paradise,” the latest visuals from Brooklyn-based electro-pop band argonaut&wasp, is an anachronistic mashup of time and place. We see a vision of 1920s Los Angeles where Charleston-dancing flappers and dapper dandies fall under a spell of scintillating, modern dance-pop. It suggests that a&w are transcendent merrymakers and can start a party in even the most preposterous circumstances. As we await a full-length debut, their two EPs and a plentiful string of fresh and fizzy singles should keep the dance floor replete with sweaty, ravenous booty-shakers. Argonaut&wasp play on Friday, July 21, at SideBar in Burlington. Local newcomers Night Protocol make their debut.
