Paint Me Naked are a German trio whose latest EP, Fantasy, unleashes doses of ’80s dream-pop and post-punk nostalgia. Melancholic synths, hypnotic female vocals, and post-punk rhythms comprise the arsenal on the EP and throughout highlight “Fantasy,” whose music video we’re happy to premiere. The grainy beach-side footage fits the aesthetic well — somewhere between twinkling synth-pop and gloomily nostalgic post-punk. The project, which formed in December 2016, are kicking off the year in great form with this strong EP.
