King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard drop brilliantly weird "Trapdoor" video [Premiere]

10 November 2015, 12:30 | Written by Laurence Day

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have just dropped one of their most gorgeously strange videos for latest single "Trapdoor".

The track is taken from upcoming LP Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, which is their second album of the year, following the summer's Quarters.

There's lots of nodding ghosts (or nuns?) in "Trapdoor" dancing around candelabras and under banquet tables... it's just something you've gotta witness yourself, really, but the schlocky ridiculousness of their visuals marries perfectly with the dusty psych the outfit have churned out.

Paper Mâché Dream Balloon is out 13 November.
