So, lot’s of people have lost all hope for MGMT ever since they turned their backs on the infectious pop melodies of their first album Oracular Spectacular with their less accessible follow-up, Congratulations. The video for the first single was similarly strange, although the music this time around sounds like old-school Pink Floyd era psychedelia to us, and isn’t that the point? Perhaps audiences will be more pleased with their new video for “It’s Working,” featuring rainbow lava lamp colors, a floating ballerina and a giant machine. You tell us.

With their first album, MGMT went from Wesleyan college kids to opening band for Paul McCartney. And if their first single off their sophomore effort, “Congratulations” (out April 13th) is any indicator, it seems they’ll expand even further into Avant-garde psychedelia. We’ve got the video for proof.
