NYC duo Rubblebucket is gearing towards releasing their new record Sun Machine, which will be out this Friday, August 24th via Grand Jury Music. But since Friday isn’t here yet, they are taking us today in an animated joyride with their new video “Annihilation Song” where we see a couple drive through a surrealistic landscape. Directed by animator Amanda Bonaiuto, “Annihilation Song” is a mind-stretching cartoons that lets you take a break from adulthood:

Comprised of Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth, Sun Machine is largely influenced by the struggles that the duo faced over the years. And they’re not basic struggles like not remembering your new password Panda3xpre$$. The record captures Kalmia’s fight with ovarian cancer, Alex’s process in getting sober, and the duo’s three-yearlong attempt at having an open relationship. They’re exes now, but still partners-in-crime when it comes to music. Make sure to catch them live this fall:
