The Flaming Lips
have shared a new video for “Almost Home (Blisko Domu)” from their Oczy Mlody album released earlier this year.
In the 10-minute, short film-style clip, Wayne Coyne, sporting an eyepatch and decked out in rhinestones, sets out to save someone called the “King of Love” from a malevolent, cackling, mermaid-like lady who plans to “delete” him. After the King dies, the band performs the song in a room made up of color-changing spheres. The entire spectacle is such a trippy sensation of eccentric costumes and pulsing lights, there’s no doubt that the Lips’ frontman directed it himself.
Watch the video above, and check out our review of Oczy Mlody, along with a 2007 performance from the Paste Cloud.
