Los Angeles-based quartet FIDLAR have released a twisted new music video for their song “Punks.” The track is from the band’s album titled Too, which was released on September 4, 2015.
The video is centered on a man who attends an underground party in a retro, futuristic basement setting. The event begins normally but takes an unusual turn once the guests consume a peculiar green beverage.
FIDLAR teamed up with The Flaming Lips and a few artists based in Oklahoma City to create the music video and filmed most of it at the Lips’ art space called The Womb. In a statement provided on their label Dine Alone Records’ site, the bassist of the band makes a comment about the collaboration:
“Getting to make a video at The Womb using all of The Flaming Lips’ resources was a dream come true,” offered Schwartzel. “We had their entire warehouse at our disposal and there were always a bunch of ‘freaks’ hanging around offering to help us make cool stuff. There doesn’t seem to be that much to do in Oklahoma City, so if you’re a weird art kid, you’re probably going to end up hanging out with The Flaming Lips. Something I really like about both of our bands is the preference for friends over professionals. Getting your friends together, giving them a job to do, and then watching them excel at it is super cool.”
