This Aussie music video is a nod to the cult films of the 90s
Porcupine sunset is the debut single from the Adelaide-based artist known as Albert.
The video accompanying the song was written, directed and edited by YouTuber, Robert J. D’Ottavi.
His YouTube channel, “iamthatroby” has over 2 million views and focuses on video essays about film. This devotion to movies is obvious in the style of the music video, which pays homage to cult films.
Key inspirations in the clip are drawn from a Quentin Tarantino meets Wes Anderson perspective. However, there is more to the video. It is also a deconstruction of toxic masculinity, a dialogue which has been brought to the fore by Tarantino himself.
