The first video from MGMT’s SPIN-lauded sophomore album, Congratulations, has arrived — and it’s a trippy, gorgeously-shot beauty. Watch “Flash Delirium” below!

Directed by Andreas Nilsson, who’s helmed videos for Fever Ray, Moby, and Ida Maria, among many others, the clip — filmed in a glossy, colorful style that recalls Wes Anderson movies like The Life Aquatic and The Darjeeling Limited — features Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser attending a bizarre welcome home party, thrown for Ben by various military officers and socialites.

But Ben has a nasty secret, something sinister brewing inside of him, if you will.

Watch the clip below and tell us what you think about MGMT’s big visual return. And for more insight into Congratulations, out April 13, check out William Goodman’s recent Q&A with VanWyngarden.
