Brooklyn boy-girl duo Cults won’t release their first album until May, but their single calling card—the chiming, charming pop pastiche “Go Outside”—earned them multiple gold stars in bloggyland last year.
And now, it’s hitched them to two young movie stars, Emma Roberts (It’s Kind of a Funny Story, the upcoming Scream 4) and Dave Franco (Greenberg) who play star- (or more accurately, dimension-) crossed loves in the mod-ish, French New Wave-inspired clip below. (It’s part of MTV and Mean’s Supervideo project, which pairs musicians with actors and filmmakers—and brought us last year’s Anna Kendrick/LCD Soundsystem matchup.)
“The story revolves around a film fanatic who’s obsessed with the work of Jean Luc Godard,” Franco (yes, he James’ younger brother) tells EW. “It reminds me of how music videos used to be. There is a narrative, and it feels more like a short film than a traditional music video.”
Watch Franco and Roberts fall in amour fou, after the jump:
