Metronomy Release Michel Gondry-Directed Video for 'Love Letters'

(Radio.com) For Metronomy's latest video "Love Letters," the band was looking to do something a little outside the box while being trapped in a box. So it's no surprise that they enlisted Michel Gondry-the man behind the White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl" and Bjork's "Bachelorette"-to direct the kitschy clip.

Dressed in matching maroon blazers, the band gets a little cheesy for the performance clip that has them contained to one little box, that is painted to look like a an old timey recording studio.

But if you blink you might miss that this little box is really something much more special. Gondry manages to turn it into a darkened forest by turning off the lights. Then it's a busy city street and the band is playing in an orange van. But no matter where they are, the foursome is going to be writing love letters.

The band kicks off their North American tour on May 9 in Atlanta, Georgia. Metronomy's new album, Love Letters, is out March 10. Watch the video here.
