Little Dragon’s ‘Celebrate’ Video Is a Surreal Acid Trip

Slime pinatas, trippy guitar solos fill psychedelic clip from Swedish synth-pop outfit

Swedish synth-pop outfit Little Dragon unveiled a bizarre and engrossing new video for “Celebrate,” off their new album, Season High.

The Ossian Melin-directed clip comprises a mess of bizarre images washed in psychedelic effects. Singer Yukimi Nagano dances to the infectious track on a cliff overlooking a city, a stabbed piñata oozes green slime and drummer Erik Bodin watches in a giddy daze as a guitarist rips through the outrageous solo that closes “Celebrate.”

Little Dragon are touring the U.S. in support of Season High through May 6th. They’ll embark on another North American leg July 20th in Salt Lake City and wrap August 31st at the Apollo Theater in New York City. The band will also play several festival dates including FYF, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Nagano spoke about the eclectic mix of styles that fill Season High, saying, “I know we have our sound, but I hope we can keep evolving and even if there is a genre that we’re in, not get stuck in that. In high school, we’d try to impress each other – have you heard this? – with any kind of music. We really want to be universal in that way.”
