Röyksopp provides soundtrack for space invasion

It was only a matter of time before those 8-bit bastards invaded the realm of music videos, as evidenced in this brief but bubbly ditty from Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp.

“Happy Up Here,” the first single from Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge’s third studio album Junior, pays homage to Space Invaders both visually and sonically, with a full scale alien attack punctuated by the pulsating bleeps and bloops of electro ear candy.

I prefer to fight off any alien attacks to the dolcett tones of Rush, but this would do in a pinch.
