David Knight - 2nd Sept 2010

Some ET, a dash of Star Wars and a fair dollop of Chris Cunningham and Leftfield's Afrika Shox... it's the new, more gentle weird of MGMT, courtesy of Tom Kuntz, making a rare visit to music video world.

Tom eschews his much-loved sidesplitting style in favour of poignant strangeness - in a similar vein to Andreas Nilsson's latest Yeasayer - and highly impressive production values. Sonny Gerasimonwicz, the man behind Spike Jonze's Wild Things, designed the alien buzzard creature and Legacy FX brought it to life.
