Dance Gavin Dance Young Robot

The wait for Dance Gavin Dance‘s highly-anticipated new studio album Mothership is nearly over, and the band is making sure fans’ excitement for the record is piqued with a fantastic video for their new promotional single, “Young Robot.”

It’s crazy to think that it was just a few short weeks back that Dance Gavin Dance wowed us with their last music video because they’ve outdone themselves (and everyone else) once more with the visuals for “Young Robot.” Set in the fictional universe found in the cover art for Mothership, the clip follows a young robot navigating the perils of young adulthood, romance, bullies, and more. It’s wonderfully imaginative and worthy of anywhere from two to six streams in a single sitting. Dive in:

If you didn’t catch every line, here are the lyrics to “Young Robot” in full:


This time won’t blame myself it’s been long time coming been a long time coming
This time I know you well its been a long time coming been a long time coming
Follow me they’re gonna follow ’cause I’m on the inside and they’re on outside waiting
This time I know myself it’s been a long time coming been a long time coming

Don’t worry
You don’t have to bear your soul about it
Go away, you can’t stay, you got no more reasons left to come my way
Go away, you can’t stay, you got no more reasons left to come my way

Brain
Robot wang
Gonna slang through the tang
I-8764
The sex assistant
I-8764
It’s no commitment

She said
Drink that love don’t demand it
‘Cause baby I can’t stand it
When you look so pathetic
But I can’t stop with the rhythm of it
Drink that love
It’s like a habit
Feeling like a savage
You know I gotta have it
I, I gotta have it all

I wish I didn’t miss this
ah ah I gotta have it all
They call me hedonistic
Can’t stop with the rhythmn gotta have it all
I make them kiss they sistas
ah ah I gotta have it all
He flips his black ass robot hair

I don’t know about you, but as far as I am concerned Dance Gavin Dance are the only band in the world right now who can sneak a line like “robot wang” into a song and still manage to sound like they’re conveying some kind of deep, meaningful message with each verse. It’s a form of art, to be honest, and Dance Gavin Dance are the masters of their field.

You can find a review of Mothership in the upcoming issue of Substream, which should hit stands around the same time the record arrives in stores (October 7).
