of Montreal Fights Demons In New Video

Photo credit: Christina Schneider

of Montreal is sharing a video for the song Get God’s Attention By Being An Atheist following the release of their latest album, UR FUN, last month. The album is an electro-pop homage to Kevin’s personal life, and in the bright and energetic video we see his nephew fighting whatever monsters get in his way.

Watch: Get God’s Attention By Being An Atheist 

“I wanted to use child actors because this song is an anthem to rebellion and fuck-all’edness. Anybody who’s spent any time around five year olds knows that they are the embodiment of punk rock élan. My brother’s son plays the role of Baby Lanc, a sort of Pied Piper character that teaches other kids how to conquer their demons, and have a blast while doing it!”- Kevin Barnes
