The Flaming Lips create a disturbing, psychedelic atmosphere on the new “Nidgy Nie (Never No)” video. Singer Wayne Coyne dances in a winter coat as his bandmates perform under a layer of plastic.
“Nidgy Nie” is a synth-fueled instrumental from the band’s newly released Oczy Mlody, their first LP of original material since 2013’s The Terror. In recent weeks, they promoted the new album with mind-altering official videos for “The Castle,” “Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)” and “How?”, along with a lyric clip for the Miley Cyrus-featured “We A Family.”
Coyne described the futuristic Oczy Mlody, produced by longtime Lips collaborator Dave Fridmann, as “Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky, and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future.”
