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:
