MGMT’s “When You Die” Is A Confirmation That Life Is A Dark Comedy

Cycle of Life.

MGMT takes us into the cycle of life in their new video “When You Die” starring the actor Alex Karpovsky. Directed by Mike Burakoff and Hallie Cooper-Novack, “When You Die” shuffles through various feelings and memories as we vicariously go from life to death to rebirth. It has a punch of dark humor to it where we feel the biting mortality and the glorious absurdity that we experience throughout life. It is hauntingly paranormal and almost childlike imagination. Watch below:

“When You Die” is from MGMT’s fourth album Little Dark Age, which will be out in early 2018. As of now, MGMT has some show dates coming up:
