MGMT is charting an ominously morbid, gothic return with their latest track, the aptly-named “When You Die.”
Confronting the concept of death, vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden sings, “You die / and words don’t do anything.” Continuing, “It’s permanently night / and I won’t feel anything.”
A buoyant melody and driving synth aid in the exuberance of a most blissful multitude on the new track. It’s both enveloping and enthralling, all while the video’s protagonist flys through a blissful void of seemingly meaningless activities, and a sea of space when he passes.
“When You Die” is akin to the very ethos of the synth-pop stars. VanWyngarden lashes out on the track, “Go fuck yourself / You heard me right / Don’t call me nice, again,” all while simultaneously encapsulating the introspective lyrics and dazzling dexterity of group that seems to be charting a momentous return.
Little Dark Age is due out in February of 2018 and will serve as a follow-up to the band’s self-titled LP of 2013. While its release date and tracklist have yet to be announced, they’ve been performing new tracks from the record while on tour, and have an array of festivals they’re set to appear at.
A few months back, MGMT officially announced that they would be releasing a new album called Little Dark Age early next year — it’s the follow-up to their 2013 self-titled — and shared its title track. Today, the psychedelic pop band is back with another song from their upcoming LP called “When You … More »

Los Angeles-based producers Two Friends are well-known for their spunky and vibrantly wild revamps of originals. Their latest, a take on MGMT‘s anthem, “Kids,” is undeniably catchy.
Keeping the original lyrics from the electro-pop powerhouse, Two Friends successfully incorporate their own sound, highlighting the all-encompassing melody of the track in good measure. Adding additional emphasis to the beat, without aggressively altering the BPM, the track receives a whole new feel to the popular classic, transforming the song completely.
Two Friends currently are wrapping up their nationwide tour where they played more than 20 shows in cities like their hometown of LA and large universities such as University of Texas and more.
Two Friends are one of the most exciting duos in electronic dance music at the moment. Matt and Eli have the ability to keep fans ravenous for their productions by releasing both brilliant original efforts and by taking on some of the most classic, nostalgia inducing hits of yesteryear as remixes.

It’s not a music video, but the thing I saw this week that left the deepest impression was the introduction to the 2011 CMT Music Awards, a galactically dumb comedy bit that happens to star Taylor Swift, Shania Twain, Kid Rock, and, in a bone-chilling cameo, Donald Trump. I’m a bit worried that Kenny … More »
Earlier this Spring, the seminal indie rockers — or “rokkers,” if one prefers the band’s spelling — MGMT took to social media to hint at a comeback and went on to announce the title of their first record in over four years,Little Dark Age.
At last, the band has unveiled new music in the form of the record’s title track and a confirmation that the LP is slated for early 2018.
“Little Dark Age” marks a sinister departure from the band’s well-known numbers like “Time To Pretend” or “Kids.” Still, it maintains some semblances of pop, in a seemingly candid, illustrious fashion. The tune flourishes in its chorus, “If you get out of bed/ And find me standing all alone/ Open-eyed/ Burn the page/ My little dark age.”
Little Dark Age will mark MGMT’s first album since their 2013 self-titled. Speaking with Beats 1 radio’s Zane Lowe, the duo detailed the recording process, “We felt like we had reached a flow, it was the sort of chemistry, the kind of magic feeling we had when we started the band.”
Back in May, MGMT started teasing a new album called Little Dark Age, their first since 2013’s mixed bag of a self-titled record. Now, over four years later — and just over 10 years(!) since their debut Oracular Spectacular — they’re finally back with the new album’s title track. During an interview … More »

When Hollywood unveils its first nostalgic coming-of-age period piece about the late aughts, an MGMT song will inevitably soundtrack the trailer. “Kids” is the obvious choice to accompany the exploits of young people at the dawn of the Obama administration due to its title, its propulsive-yet-wistful tone, and its status as the band’s biggest hit.
