Brandon Flowers Probed by Aliens with a Thing for Camp


A hetero Mormon who has spoken out for gay rights, Brandon Flowers of The Killers has always seemed nothing but gay to me, and he doesn't stray from that distinction in the new clip for their energetic new track "Spaceman," donning modified football shoulder pad drag with the same feathered epaulets he wore for "Human" along with tights and a utility belt/codpiece. "Spaceman" meditates on alien abduction.

Flowers' tendency to look back at the 80's and 90's for his inspirations appears to be in full force here. Robbie at Chart Rigger notes a campy familiarity to Andy Bell's 1985 clip for "Heavenly Action."
