New Reels: ‘Let´s Relate’ by Of Montreal

The new single by Of Montreal is funky, dark, catchy and a total ear worm.

Of Montreal released a new single and video on September 1st. The third single from their album  Innocence Reaches. Its the band 14th album, and it seems fun, and different and interesting. (Something we confess have not considered them to be for a while).

I love the lyrics (could not pick and have posted them all below). The video I think makes fun of the idea of a pop star and his posse of hangers-on. Or of all of us in today´s celebrity-filled world? A little bit of satire hidden inside that EMD. Clever, brave and bold. Right up our alley!

How do you identify? how do you i.d.?
Are you something fashion wild?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me
I want to objectify, I want to object
Are you something fashion free?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me

Amalgam, I think that you’re great, let’s relate
I already like you I like that you like you I think that you’re great I want to relate

I want to be modified, I want to diverge, are you somethingaliquot?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me
How do you identify? how do you i.d.?
Are you something fashion wild?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me

Amalgam, I think that you’re great, let’s relate
I already like you I like that you like you I think that you’re great I want to let’s
Relate

Readings of scorpion collage in my Ménilmontant atelier
Summer sobbing in the Père Lachaise sending clicking sounds into the void
Till I was clear of all reflexive anger and the dodgy ‘hate you’ song
It felt chill to be a failure though I’ve been a deprivation too long
Let’s relate
