Psych-pop duo MGMT has shared the music video for their newest single, “In the Afternoon.” Produced and directed by Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser — the tandem behind the group — the visual gives off a gentle whiff of nostalgia right from the get-go, revealing the track and music video information on the bottom left-hand corner like it was playing on a music TV channel from the ’90s. The visual itself, however, plays a more modern route and features clips of the two overlayed with vivid patterns and artworks to create a mind-altering effect for the viewer.

MGMT also took this opportunity to introduce their newest label, MGMT Records. It’s worth noting that while “In the Afternoon” is released the new name, the duo’s last studio album Little Dark Age and every other studio album dropped before it was credited to Columbia Records. The single is included in a limited 12” of the same name and features a B-side entitled “As You Move Through,” releasing March 2020.
