Broken Bells next album, After The Disco, is due out in early 2014. Today we get the second installment of their short film that goes with the album. Check out Part One: Angel and The Fool.

It's a strange, futuristic video featuring Anton Yelchin and Kate Mara as star crossed lovers. The guys from Broken Bells (Danger Mouse and James Mercer) appear as ominous overlords who control Yelchin's character by making him dress in the futuristic clothing. There's also some freaky stuff going on with these clear helmet things that are part of the space suits. And old people.

The music is really cool. They've obviously put some time and energy into syncing the music up with the video. The sound is very cinematic, with some interesting motifs and moments where the drama is driven by what the music is doing. We're definitely looking forward to part 3!
