Strange, beguiling...

The problem that the 21st century has with the past is that a lot of it is so strange, so downright odd that it could probably qualify as the future if we squinted hard enough.

Tasseomancy are Sari and Romy Lightman. Best known for their attachment to Austra, the duo have produced a series of tracks under their own name.

'Reality' is a softly hewn synth hymnal, slowly stamping its own identity in a profoundly retro-Futurist manner.

The video for 'Reality' was edited by Sari Lightman and Neil Corcoran, and finds its inspiration in a Bauhaus ballet from the early 20th century.

It's a profoundly strange experience. People in costumes dance delicately on the screen, with the whole experience being so incredibly serious that it becomes entirely silly all over again.

Watch it now.
