watch the music video for madeon’s “pay no mind”

french producer madeon seems to be following in the footsteps of his contemporary, porter robinson, by releasing a debut album with grandiose stadium-pop ambitions.  adventure is due out march 31st via columbia, and madeon sensibly enlisted the help of passion pit’s michael angelakos for the album’s second single, “pay no mind.”  angelakos’ voice fits snugly on top of madeon’s whirlwind of synthesizers like a well-made tupperware lid, and the anthemic qualities of “pay no mind” are only further enhanced by its music video.  set in a futuristic metropolis, the video follows a restless young couple who seem to be looking for a way out of the city’s confines.  it’s also the second part of a purported trilogy of music videos; you can catch up on the backstory with the video for “you’re on” before tackling “pay no mind” below.
