MGMT’s ‘Your Life Is A Lie’ Video Shakes Off The Past

Brooklyn psychedelic duo MGMT have just dropped the video for Your Life Is A Lie, ahead of the release of their self-titled third studio album this September, and it’s one hectic mishmash of repetitive imagery and a building loop of a song.

The video for the two minute chunk of frantic energy stars some singing skeletons, a fax machine and even Arrested Development and Happy Days star Henry Winkler. As for the song itself, Your Life Is A Lie slots right in with the other new tunes we’ve heard from the outfit this year, Mystery Disease and the Record Store Day release Alien Days.

MGMT have been doing everything possible to shake off their radio-friendly debut Oracular Spectacular since it reached over-saturation point in 2008 and while Your Life Is A Lie isn’t as tripped out as their last album, 2010's Congratulations, they’ve certainly brought a heavy dose of the weird.

Full length effort number three from Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden hits stores in Australia on Friday, 13th September.
