Time is Art is a documentary film that follows the journey of a writer, compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed. Considering herself a skeptic, a series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity – the concept that everything is interconnected and that time is not so much a chronology as it is an infinite cycle. The music featured in the film is deeply emotional, dreamy and transcendental.

“Their sublime single “Bonfire Man” blends in noisy guitars, some tasty electro hooks, classic pop vocals, and just a lacing of Caribbean flavor. “What I Want,” marries R&B to dreampop and sprinkles it with tambourine and disco guitar.

But they could also definitely get down to it — especially the Pointer Sisters-meets-Le Tigre jam “Paper Chase.” – Beverly, MTV Iggy
