The Magnetic Fields, "Quick!"
The Magnetic Fields, "Quick!"

Can the Magnetic Fields do anything wrong? Even on their latest track missing the incredible Stephin Merritt’s vocals, they still manage to create some stunning sounds. The recently released video accompaniment to “Quick!” is luckily just as wonderful.

The last we’ve seen of Merritt was in the “Andrew in Drag” video, which, although not nearly as cool as “Quick!” is still quite fascinating. We miss him dearly, but the band proves they’re more than their leader in the latest video. “Quick!” is like an homage to Oscar the Grouch, featuring the love story of two trash-bin people. They’re utterly adorable and their story is captivating. A job well done by the Magnetic Fields, once again.

But don’t take our word for it- check out the video below. We can say in good confidence this is one of the best we’ve seen this year.
