Gardens & Villa released their party trip video for “Fixations” from their upcoming album Music For Dogs. 

Glitter, drones, karaoke, selfie sticks and lazer guns? No, it’s not a recap of my 21st birthday, it’s Gardens & Villa’s new video for “Fixations.” Gardens & Villa are releasing their new record, Music For Dogs, on August 21st via Secretly Canadian, and they are excited to release the video for their first single “Fixations.” The bizarre, psychedelic video features the band stumbling upon an e-cig and drug-fueled party, featuring a Segway-cruising Einstein/Warholian menace, portrayed by Foxygen’s Sam France. Austin Kearns directed the video, which premiered earlier today on The FADER, and here’s what the band had to say about it:

“The video is a satire of the culture that we actively participate in.  Critiquing the self is an exercise in humor.  It’s like an exaggeration of the 2015 internet-dependent human existence.  It’s funny and at the same time a strange modern void. Working with Austin Kearns and his team was a joy.  They are true weirdos that mercilessly ride the wave of the future.”

Make sure to pre-order Music For Dogs and don’t miss Gardens & Villa in their U.S. tour this fall. They just did a killer show in Seattle with Red Bull Sound Select and brought their psychedelic wonderment to all fortunate to be there. Do it!
