Following the release of ‘Nonagon Infinity’ we’re excited that Dangerous Minds have premiered the ‘righteously insane’ new video for King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Peoples Vultures.’ The video follows in the same vein as ‘Gamma Knife,’ similarly to the the looping album and visually with it’s bonkers concept.
Here’s what the video’s co-directors Danny Cohen & Jason Galea had to say on the concept:
We conceptualised a giant 6 meter tall musical vulture. The vulture housed all seven band members along with their instruments and trundled across different landscapes fighting various characters plucked from the tracks on Nonagon Infinity.
With the vulture fully assembled and all the band members inside, it weighed over a tonne and was difficult to move safely across the rough terrain without breaking or toppling over. [frontman] Stu [Mackenzie] had the daunting job of being inside the vulture’s neck and head with only a small railing to battle the vertigo and bumps as the vulture slowly moved.
‘Nonagon Infinity’ is the eighth album from the band and their fourth record released on Heavenly, Purchase the album here.
‘Precision freak-beat brilliance, delivered at maximum velocity’
– MOJO ★★★★
“After recent diversions into cool jazz and acoustica, the eighth album finally trowels on their speciality — the pulsating, Super Furry Animals-style psychedelia of 2014’s ‘Head On/Pill’, extended over a whole album…It’s seemless, silly, but seriously good.”
- Q Magazine ★★★★
“The rusty screech of Robot Stop kickstarts the record, before Gamma Knife careens down a midnight motorway on a flame-streaked motorbike”
– The Guardian ★★★★
“Quite possibly the heaviest they’ve ever trod, last year’s dream-pop stopgap ‘Paper Mache Dream Balloon’ feels like exactly that — a hazy, subconscious memory. ‘Nonagon Infinity,’ by contrast, relishes the darkness. Whenever the rhythmic repetition threatens déjà vu, they take a left turn, ‘Gamma Knife’ in particular a probing, exploratory box of bells , whistles and harmonics solos.”
