WATCH: Battles & Gary Numan New Video

Trio highlight the potential pitfalls of consumerism in video for 'My Machines'

Quartet-turned trio Battles have just released the video for their new single, ‘My Machines’, which finds them expanding to quartet again with synth-pop don Gary Numan on vocals. Here he’s enjoying a relaxing trip to his local shopping centre when things take a turn for the sinister. It’s one of the best music videos we’ve seen for a while, and elicited some healthy chuckles from Quietus staff.
