As anyone who saw Oddsac can attest, Animal Collective has a pretty out there visual sensibility. So it makes sense that the band would team up with filmmaker Gaspar Noé, the auteur behind dorm room classics like Irreversible and Enter The Void. Fresh off helming the surprisingly minimal clip for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ “We No Who U R,” Noé was recruited to bring a touch of multi-colored psychedelia to the Centipede Hz track “Applesauce,” and it’s a pretty sticky affair.
The clip features a woman enjoying a fruit in an extreme close-up as flashing lights flicker behind her. It’s pretty intense, and the press release suggests you view it in the dark, but you also might just want to watch it with some fruit of your own handy. It’ll make you hungry. Check it out below, along with Animal Collective’s recently announced tour dates with Baltimore chamber-pop impressario Dan Deacon.
