Video of the Week: MGMT’s Flash Delirium

Review by Royal Stuart

MGMT, whose new album Congratulations comes out April 13, have managed to create a video that actually sickened me upon initial viewing. Consider yourself warned. Directed by Andreas Nillson, who is no stranger to making unusual and somewhat disturbing music videos for unusual and somewhat disturbing bands like Fever Ray and The Knife, appears to be pushing further and further into the areas of the human mind in order to evoke a visceral experience. Similar to the work of Chris Cunningham from ten years ago, this video will no doubt wind it’s way into my dreams and nightmares.

Enjoy.
