Watch: Thee Oh Sees’ bizarre new video for “The Lens”

on March 20, 2014, 3:34pm

Judging by the outrageous artwork that accompanied Thee Oh Sees’s single “The Lens” last month, it’s no surprise the corresponding video is equally bizarre. Directed by Alex Theodoropulos, it’s a totally wacky and technicolor journey through an alternate universe, as seen through the eyes of a brave and curious astronaut.

I use the term “alternate universe” rather loosely here, because I kind of have no idea WTF is going on — I just know that I can’t take my eyes off these visuals. Suffice it to say the clip features floating babies, a svelte and naked Avatar-like female, and random penises sprouting up from the ground. Yeaaah. Eerily enough, it suits the Bay Area band’s melancholy track to a T. Check out the slightly NSFW video below.

“The Lens” is taken from Thee Oh Sees’ new album, The Drop, due out on April 19th (Record Store Day) via frontman John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records.

Drop Tracklist:
01. Penetrating Eye
02. Encrypted Bounce
03. Savage Victory
04. Put Some Reverb on My Brother
05. Drop
06. Camera (Queer Sound)
07. King’s Noise
08. Transparent World
09. The Lens
