    Indie rock duo Foxygen has released a new music video (or short comedic film?) for their glamorous single "Avalon," from their latest album Hang, which came out this past January.

    In this video especially, Foxygen puts their 60s/70s influences on full display. Or rather, they poke fun at them. The video is eight minutes long, but the first four of those minutes are dedicated to a comedic skit that sets up the actual music video. This skit sees lead singer Sam France becoming increasingly frustrated with his bandmate, the multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Rado, as he oversees every aspect of their new music video in the role of a wannabe auteur director. "I can't believe this all came from my mind," Rado states as he observes the hilariously cliche 60s get-ups and set designs that he's forced a frustrated Sam France to take part in.

    This is far from the first time that Foxygen has gotten silly in their music videos. Check out their similarly self-aware video for "Follow the Leader" below:
