Earlier this year, the elusive Australian band The Avalanches finally released their sophomore album Wildflower, a full 15 years after their massively influential debut. To accompany the album launch, they dropped a bizarre (and truly frightening visual) for their single “Frankie Sinatra,” featuring Danny Brown and MF Doom. Now they have followed that up with a much less harrowing, and far more adorable, video for the song “Because I’m Me.”
Filmed entirely on a New York City subway platform, the clip depicts a very cute child resembling a young Michael Jackson attempting to win the affections of an aloof MTA worker. Though his age is an obvious impediment to this romance, he manages to find a brass band, a rapping fellow subway patron, and a huge inflatable heart to help his cause.
The Avalanches’ new album Wildflower is available now. Stream it below via Spotify:
