Broken Bells, the duo of Danger Mouse and Shins frontman James Mercer, return early next year with their sophomore album After The Disco, and they’ve brought out some big guns in the short-film video for their first single “Holding On For Life,” the second part of a story that started here. The clip stars Kate Mara (Zoe Barnes on House Of Cards!) and Anton Yelchin (Chekov in the new Star Trek movies!), and it picks up where the last one left off. This time, Yelchin and Mara are a couple with a problem: They’re at a party on a glowing orb-shaped spaceship, and their reality keeps bending in on itself. You’d think Yelchin would be a little more used to the distorting effects of space travel after all his time on the Enterprise, but no. Jacob Gentry, who made the pretty good zombie movie The Signal, directed the video, Danger Mouse wrote the story, and the Creators Project produced it. Watch it below.

After The Disco is out 1/14 via Columbia.
