After a brief hiatus, indie duo Broken Bells, a.k.a. Danger Mouse's Brian Burton and James Mercer of the Shins, are back with a dreamy new film (watch above) and album due in January. To celebrate the forthcoming release of their second full-length record, they created this short film, After the Disco, Part One: Angel and the Fool, casting Star Trek's Anton Yelchin and Kate Mara from House of Cards to play star-crossed lovers in an otherworldly landscape.
Directed by Jacob Gentry and produced by POPfilms in conjunction with The Creators Project, the video follows Oliver (Anton Yelchin) as he slips into a parallel universe where he meets the love of his life in the form of fallen astronaut, Helen (Kate Mara). Before they can fully embrace one another, a pink, glowing starship threatens their unity.
