Montreal musician Nash has just released a video for his song "Sad Robot Harmonies," a bittersweet tune about one robot's quest to keep believing in human goodness despite all evidence to the contrary.

Nash says the song is written "from the perspective of a robot with artificial intelligence who's so frustrated with humans and the terrible things that they do that he decides he can't take it anymore and resorts to building himself a tree house so that he can be removed from his human counterparts." Though I'll admit the song gets a bit twee in parts, I still think it's a friendly, wistful tune — and the video makes for a nice dose of odd fun.
