Foxygen  often blows a lot of their work out. A recent performance on Conan O’Brien’s show, for example, featured more than a dozen musicians. The psych-rock outfit are totally comfortable crafting an album more than an hour long. The band will record six-minute tracks and musical suites that run several songs. Maximalism, in some ways, is the band’s calling card.

That said, “Upon a Hill,” from the band’s new album Hang, is short and to the point, and so too is the new video for the minute-plus track. There’s little more to see here than some goofy dancehall theatrics and red-stained shots of creepy toys crowding the screen. From a band who so often go to 11, it’s refreshing to see a touch of restraint.

Check out the new video above, and find Foxygen’s expanded tour dates and a 2013 performance from the Paste Cloud below. You can also watch their recent Conan performance here, and find Paste’s Hang review here.
