FABTV: MGMT "Kids"

FABTV: MGMT "Kids"

So here's the thing: I've wanted to share this song with you for months. MGMT is one of my favorite new bands of the year. The fashion set loves them too — they've performed at numerous fashion events. "Kids" is by far my favorite song of theirs, I can listen to it over and over. But, I don't love the video. Alas, sometimes an epic song doesn't need a flashy video. I mean, the video's not horrible. The random dance clips are funny at times, I like the synchronized swimming bit, and didn't I hear a rumor the guys in the video with painted faces aren't actually the MGMT dudes? I have yet to see MGMT live — ugh — but rumors aside, this song is on my 2008 mix CD.

It's one of those bands that I heard about and wanted to check them out, then shockingly realise that I've heard their songs before.

As some of the comments above indicate this is an unofficial video. The kids in the video are a guy and girl and they made it for a class. They actually show up in the beginning of the "Electric Feel" official video (stirring the pot) because MGMT liked this video so much. I think the video is cute because the girl is so charismatic. You're right also in pointing out that the song is awesome.

I love this song too. It made me smile hearing it playing on the radio recently. The video description itself by the creator said this is an unofficial video. I don't think it's a bad video at all, maybe the video quality is low, but it's quirky and fun.

Actually this is the real video for this song, the people with their faces painted are a guy and a girl that they were friends with from Wesleyan where they went to school. I just saw them in NY a month or so back, they are incredible!

this song and indie rokkers are two of my favorite songs ever. electric eel is pretty good too. i first heard kids mid-spring from my boyfriend when we were first getting close, so it stands out a lot to me. it's just so good for chilling out.

I got into them a couple months ago myself. Love it. Unfortunately I haven't been listening to as much music as usual but I can recall "Electric Eel" being a favorite song too on my first couple listens of the album. Listened to the new Q-Tip album last night, highly recommend it. Love him.
