The Flaming Lips are just trying to get home in their new video for “Almost Home (Blisko Domu)”, but it’s not exactly that simple. Directed by frontman Wayne Coyne, the clip is really more of a 10-minute short film that’s somewhere between The Matrix, The Wizard of Oz, and whatever psychedelic ooze swims around in the frontman’s own head.
Coyne and Steven Drozd are out to save their King of Love by tricking an all-powerful mermaid-like despot who swims in silent waters. None of it is ever really explained, but it does make for some pretty sick visuals, especially when the band finally gets together to perform “Almost Home (Blisko Domu)” at the end. Check it out above.
