The Helmholtz Resonators release ‘Automaton’ video!

“…ones to keep an eye out for in the future.”
– The Vinyl District

After teasing us with an audio video, The Helmholtz Resonators have unveiled the official psychedelically retro stop-motion video for their forthcoming single, Automaton.

The video premiered on The Vinyl District and you can now watch it: 

Did you ever buy a new gadget that was so nifty you wanted to make a song and dance about it? Well, The Helmholtz Resonators have done exactly that. Built from a Walkman, some “odds and sods” and more than a little ingenuity, the eccentric musician/scientists have procured a robot to help with their chores and provide entertainment during the long winter evenings. This charming droid has had such an impact on their lives that it has inspired their best work to date, their latest single. Sounding like a cross between Tom Tom Club, Metronomy and the Human League, the mechanical marvel has been entertaining everybody it meets.

Previous single, Sunshine/Shadow picked up support from the likes of Artrocker Magazine, BBC Radio’s Steve Lamacq and Gary Crowley, and The Vinyl District, and with an album in the pipeline for 2015 (and nothing but time on their hands given their new robotic housekeeper) we’re sure to be hearing a lot more from these eccentric musical scientists.

Automaton is released 24th November via Genepool Records.
