Interview with the dudes from MGMT

Pitchfork: At the same time, something like the “Flash Delirium” video looks pretty insane in and of itself.

AV: On the first album, Ben and I wanted to be in control of everything in the videos but this time we really let go and found some really cool directors. Their ideas are even crazier than ours. [“Flash Delirium” director] Andreas Nilsson is so much more bizarre than we could ever be. [laughs] He doesn’t think the video is weird at all. We just shot the coolest video in Paris with director So Me [Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”] for “It’s Working”. In it, Ben and I find this box and these instructions to put together a machine that’s constantly changing, and we end up losing control over it. Saying this now, it sounds so metaphorical for our musical career, which is really funny.
