Video Premiere: Fictionist 'Lock and Key'

Baeble is excited to premiere Fictionist's heart-breaking video for "Lock and Key." The band's analogue treated garage-pop has a grainy radiance that pays tribute to the tonal synthy pop-rock of the '80s. They're the MGMT update of Peter Gabriel: incandescent shadow-pop.

The video, which stars the group's guitarist and his wife, shows two motherboard-based lovers—one a lovely lady model, and one a clunky and outdated desktop—pining for one another through a clinical glass barrier.
"We joked that some of the highly processed background vocals on the new record sounded like a 'sad robot'," band member Andrew Maxfield says of the video's conception. "But that sparked the question: why would a robot be sad? And then the answer came while I was riding my bike: obviously because he's stuck in an observation room and can't connect with a passing cyborg. Obviously."

Fictionist's self-titled LP comes out October 7th.
