MGMT Release 'Your Life Is A Lie'
Accompanying the short two-minute song with distorted audio is a video offering an incredible assortment of odd characters in bizarre situations, including plenty of men in their underwear, spittoons used as percussion, choirs of scuba gear-clad crazies, egg explosions, fireworks and a lizard crawling out of a guy's mouth.
"We're still in that mindset where we want to write really poppy music that doesn't follow that normal kind of structures," told singer Andrew VanWyngarden to French music magazine Brain.
"I think that happens mostly because of the way we write and the way it comes about. We don't write and sing at the same time usually so we have to make things interesting in other ways."
Speaking of the band's new album, VanWyngarden explained, "It's kind of a mix of American psychedelic and Californian sunshine-y pop from the sixties but I think there's also a lot of English music from the '80s influencing our new songs." Check out the song and read more here.
