Today we’d like to introduce you to a really, really good band with some strong steampunk sensibilities. They’re called Dirt Poor Robins, and the music video we present today is from their 2013 album, The Raven Locks Act 1. It’s called We Forgot We Were Human, and tells of our obsession with technological advancement and the busy churning of daily life at the expense of our own sense of humanity.

If you’re not viewing this on a mobile device, the Krypton Radio audio stream is no doubt currently playing. Before you watch this video, please remember to temporarily pause our music stream using the handy controller at the upper right.

This is a bit of a departure for us, as normally to be a Video of the Day the visual content has to be the centerpiece, and very strong. In this case the music is so beautiful and amazing that we just don’t care.

What do we need with the sun? Perhaps nothing. And yet, perhaps, everything.
