Toro Y Moi unveils visuals for the funktacular "Lilly"

Things get weird in Toro Y Moi's local supermarket during the video for new single "Lilly".

Frequent collaborator HARRYS has directed the video.

Speaking about the track in our review of Chaz Bundick's latest record What For?, reviewer John Bell said:

"Sandwiched in the middle of the record is "Lilly", a gem that combines Supertramp-esque verses with lustrous, sleepy choruses that evoke blissful emotions that are so silky they’re almost intangible. These dreamy melodies are in keeping with the record’s nostalgia that harks back to the Summer of Love era in bands such as The Byrds and The Mamas and The Papas, but the album’s crisp production makes them all the more vibrant. With the simple lyric hook, "Like me, like you", the emphasis is on the melody. Indeed, although Bundick has commented on his ambiguity as purposeful, the vague lyricism throughout does at times leave us with something to be desired. But regardless of this, the melodies here are so powerful as such that it is not an overstatement to say that with "Lilly" Bundick has created a song to fall in love to."

What For? is out now on Carpark.
