MGMT – When You Die

Haven’t genuinely fucked with MGMT since their second album, Congratulations, so hearing how immaculate their new single is truly warms my heart. The instrumentation is reminiscent of one of my favorite tracks from them, “Of Moons, Birds & Monsters” off their debut album. The lyrics take a dark turn on this one, as it laughs in the face of death, which might take a couple listens to truly interpret. Regardless “When You Die” sounds heavenly, and will be a part of their fourth studio album Little Dark Age. Watch the psychedelic music video above, directed by Mike Burakoff and Hallie Cooper-Novack and starring Alex Karpovsky and Lucy Kaminsky.
