If you haven’t heard the news by now, prepare yourself for an insanely good treat from MGMT, the celebrated American psych rock and indietronica band who’s brought us a whole lot of magnificence as well as a healthy helping of divisiveness and experimentalism in the past decade with their ever changing music. That’s right, the Connecticut duo is back, and in glorious style with a fresh new song named Little Dark Age as well as a fittingly decadent and dark music video to accompany the spectacular song. Little Dark Age is an icy pulsing, slick throbbing electronic banger. MGMT has gone the cool and gloomy, glamorous and pompous route with this sudden foray into French house and electro funk, which feels deliciously gothic, too. It’s almost like they’ve taken their usual psychedelia and infused it with Justice’s electro rock/disco electro, as well as an abundance of The Cure, Depeche Mode, Soulwax, and some Tame Impala, too. Little Dark Age arrives just in time for Halloween later this month. You can snag this brilliant song, here. New MGMT might be a sign of a new album to come. I certainly hope so. I’m excited to learn more about this new evolution of MGMT and to hear more from a new body of work.
