It looks like it is 1985 all over again when Owl City takes his DeLorean out for a spin in his fantastical new video for "Deer In The Headlights" that gives us all kinds of Back To The Future flashbacks.
While cruising his pimped out ride, the singer encounters a stack of cows, flying jellyfish, dinosaurs and, yes, a deer in the aisle of a highway gas station. Fortunately, the singer puts the DeLorean to work and fast forwards to the year 2015 to really surprise someone who responds like, well you guessed it, a deer in the headlights.
Adam Young tells Spin Magazine that "Deer In The Headlights" is one of his fave new tracks. "It's big and energetic — it's got a huge sound," Young says. "There's this vibe of almost it being like Blink-182, but with a couple of synth leads. It was a new frontier for me writing this song."
The hyper-melodic "Deer In The Headlights" is the second single taken from Owl City's new album "All Things Bright And Beautiful" that is filled with delicate synth pop gems with lyrics that showcase the singer's wild imagination. Watch the video for "Deer In The Headlights" after the break.
