MGMT: Peak Behind the Scenes of the ‘Little Dark Age’ Music Video
Written by Live605 on November 22, 2017
Psych-rockers MGMT returned in October with “Little Dark Age,” the title track from their fourth album, set to arrive early next year. The band simultaneously dropped a predictably odd music video to go with the tune — and now they’ve shared a behind-the-scenes clip about its making, which EW is excited to premiere below.
“I think it was a title that I had on a list on my phone, like notepad notes,” singer Andrew VanWyngarden says in the video when explaining the origins of the song’s title. “The lyrics are kind of about anxiety. But there’s also a current of the culture of crucifying and internet shaming. Getting into that world of these people that are doing things that are harmful to society and the world, they probably have this intense feeling of guilt and shame. This song is kind of calling them out.”
MGMT’s Little Dark Age — their first full-length since their 2013 self-titled effort — arrives in early 2018. Watch the behind-the-scenes video for “Little Dark Age” above.
Here is the Little Dark Age completed project.
