Published Oct 21, 2016Just yesterday (October 20), the Flaming Lips detailed their forthcoming Oczy Mlody LP and offered up its lead single "The Castle." That track has now been given the visual treatment.
The clip features a young women staring directly into a close-up camera, but the simple concept is embellished with plenty of the band's signature trippy, colourful energy. Animated doodles fill up the screen and accompany the equally psychedelic track.
