Aeroplane’s “Superstar”

By Sean Lewis

I’m sure this video has something to say about fashion, but exactly what, I’m not quite sure. What I am sure of is that Aeroplane [a]’s Vito Deluca is an ‘80s loving synth slinger with a penchant for disco and pop. The new album from the Belgian solo act, formerly a duo, is called We Can’t Fly. It’s been getting mixed reviews, but the hot little number featured here, entitled “Superstar,” is a sure winner. It’s hard to deny the pull of vocoded lyrics over classic piano. The question is: how do I get my hands on one of those masks? In lieu of one of those, I’ll content myself with the “Superstar” remix by the Krays, aka Yuksek [a] and Brodinski [a].
