Almost a year of being released as a single MGMT has finally unveiled a new video for their fantastic but extremely overplayed song Kids.
Control yourself, take only what you need from it.â€
Those simple yet profound lyrics have been somewhat of a mantra for me since I first heard the song. Having grown up traveling and living a great but somewhat out of the ordinary lifestyle has made it difficult for me to be a part of the whole 9 to 5 institution, these simple words have helped me simplify when habit makes me feel otherwise. This video features Joanna Newson as a young, wealthy and neglecting mother who canâ€™t seem to realize her child has an extraordinary imagination that has him seeing disturbing monsters and funny Eunuchs. Speaking of Eunuchs, I completely broke down laughing when he runs into MGMT dressed as silver Eunuchs singing Kids in the woods. Iâ€™m pretty sure this little kid will be tormented for the rest of his life after playing this role and I expect much criticisim to hit MGMT, either way its a cool concept and great execution, enjoy.
