“Flash Delirium”-MGMT

MGMT’s new video, Flash Delirium, off “Congratulations,” is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: strange and fast with a feeling like you might have just watched something by David Cronenberg. This is probably due in part to VanWyngarden’s and Goldwasser’s collective weirdness, but they also enlisted Andreas Nilsson, known for his strange artistic vision (see Fever Ray, Royksopp videos), for the video. The result is a supremely trippy mix of extravagant surrealism complete with military men, puppets and an iron lung.
