Vikram Vikram

Spencer Kelly

Throwing shapes! All the colors! Action packed! Well, not quite the same action taking you on a whirlwind ride in the 1986 spy thriller Vikram, but the essence of the film’s irresistible theme song is captured to perfection on The Octopus Project‘s kaleidoscopic electro-pop spree “Vikram Vikram,” now with a new video that’s equally as dazzling and shapeshifting as their cover. Imagine our protagonist (as played by eternal badass Kamal Haasan) on his getaway motorbike – or white horse – escaping explosions or sword-wielding assassins, but amped up by Octo Proj’s prismatic vibrance. It’s quite like the film’s energy – you’re fighting bad guys, but the fight’s got a good beat and you can dance to it…

Check out the new video for “Vikram Vikram” below, and see The Octopus Project tonight, Friday May 5, at the Parish, 501 Brushy St. And talk about action-packed – the bill features an outrageously spectacular set by hardcore renegades F__k Money, and a performance by musician/producer Bryan Richie’s new solo project, Galactic Protector. Doors at 7:30 p.m.

But seriously, in the film’s trailer…that still frame of the pigeon, though…epic.
