I can't recall who the band was, though I don't think they were too obscure. The video showed up occasionally on Italian MTV in spring 2001 (but I don't think the band was Italian). It was made to look as if it had been shot in the 50s: it featured vintage cars, grainy (simulated) filmstock, slide rules, and extremely narrow neckties. The protagonist shows up at work, sits at a drafting table, gets lost in a fantasy, and winds up scribbling doodles on his plan documents. The song is soft and slow and features a single male voice. Any ideas?
