We've all seen enough sweaty, high-fidelity festival footage for a lifetime, so for Red Axes' new jam "The Watkins," video director Marco Dos Santos went vintage with these archival clips from French television. The images are a perfect dose of nostalgia, and the dusty footage provides an interesting counterpart to the song's throwback rockabilly psychedelia.
