Exclusive: HUMANS Premiere 'Tell Me' Video
LCD Soundsystem may have been the first to bring dance music and Muppets together, but Vancouver electro-pop duo HUMANS are definitely the first to unite cats, Muppets, and hallucinogens together in one video. In the clip for "Tell Me" off their LP Noontide (out now via Hybridity Records), the furry friends sit on couches, smoke... something and drink a dark liquid before diving into a psychedelic swirl of strange, slow-motion lights and grasping hands.
Of the video, which was directed by their own Peter Ricq, HUMANS tell Billboard, "The 'Tell Me' video is a sequel to the first HUMANS' video we ever produced ['Bike Home']. We wanted to revisit the characters/puppets of Rick and Slade, we were curious to see where they stand today, five years later since their debut."
The release of this video coincides with the announcement of HUMANS' signing to AM Only, the booking agency that represents David Guetta, Tiesto, and Skrillex, among others. "We are very excited to have HUMANS here at AM Only," the company tells Billboard. "There aren't a lot of acts out there that has talent like HUMANS. They are definitely a lifetime act and will be around for a very long time. I am looking forward to being a part of their journey."
