Gardens & Villa are releasing their new record, Music For Dogs, on August 21st via Secretly Canadian, and they are excited to release the video for their first single “Fixations.” The bizarre, psychedelic video features the band stumbling upon an e-cig and drug-fueled party, featuring a Segway-cruising Einstein/Warholian menace, portrayed by Foxygen’s Sam France. Austin Kearns directed the video, which premiered earlier today on The FADER, and here’s what the band had to say about it:

“The video is a satire of the culture that we actively participate in.  Critiquing the self is an exercise in humor.  It’s like an exaggeration of the 2015 internet-dependent human existence.  It’s funny and at the same time a strange modern void.  Working with Austin Kearns and his team was a joy.  They are true weirdos that mercilessly ride the wave of the future.”

You can see the video below while you can see the album cover art, tracklisting and tour dates here.
