A room-sized supercomputer named Agnes falls in love with her programmer, a dorky computer scientist. Agnes needs Serious Love. It's a Twilight Zone episode from 1964.

Ray Bradbury just died. In his story, I Sing the Body Electric!, he describes a replacement animatronic grandmother as having the tune of a beehive on a warm summer's day. This is the sound we tried to get for Bem's voice.

If there was a video for this song, maybe it would be influenced by the work of Émile Cohl. Simplistic, animated line drawings that continuously curl into one another as the story progresses.

OMD - Enola Gay, synths and digital rotoscoping mean a lot to us.

Benjamin Orr (The Cars) fronted songs + The La's chime, not The Byrds.


Forth and back and forth the tapes are spinning into being; what they're saying: I need a serious love!

Ghostly machine. Fantasmagorie light is spilling, splitting atoms. What they're made of? I need a serious love!

Growing drinking sleeping walking eating talking (if anything is worth discussing)

Boys and girls in tilt-a-whirls, they're spinning in circles, capsules. What are they made of? I need a serious love!
