The Flaming Lips take fans on another acid trip-like adventure in the band’s new video for “How??,” the second single off their upcoming LP Oczy Mlody.
Filmed in frontman Wayne Coyne’s native Oklahoma City, the video begins with the singer and women in bondage costumes cruising to a warehouse on mopeds covered in stuffed animals and Christmas lights. Once there, the women engage in unsafe activities like firing Roman candles at one another and leaping over a jump rope on fire while Coyne sings the melancholy dirge from a hanging bubble chair.
In addition to the “How?” video, Coyne will also discuss Oczy Mlody with fans during a Facebook Live Q&A scheduled for 1 p.m. EST on the band’s Facebook.
Oczy Mlody, the band’s follow-up to 2014’s The Terror, arrives January 13th. “How??” comes on the heels of first single “The Castle.”
Coyne previously heralded the new LP as more “melodically song-oriented” than the band’s past few albums, saying Oczy Mlody sounds like “Syd Barrett meets A$ AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future.”
