Neon Indian Premieres “Mind, Drip” Video

Photobucket

Synth-Pop outfit Neon Indian has unveiled their new video for the widely well-received single, “Mind, Drips.” Directed by Lars Larsen, the video features for the first time ever, the use of the LZX Visionary – a brand new piece of technology developed by Larsen and his partner Edward Leckie- which manipulates images in the same way a musical synthesizer does for sound. The resulting video is one that compliments the track perfectly, bringing to life the sounds of the song with incredibly vibrant colors and layered imagery. All visual effects were recorded in real-time, using techniques such as abstract pattern synthesis, video feedback, and analog compositing.

The video for “Mind, Drips” is in support of Neon Indian’s current album Psychic Chasms, released via FADER Label / Static Tongues earlier this year. Recently, Neon Indian released Mind Ctrl: Psychic Chasms Possessed, which contains nine bonus tracks consisting of exclusive remixes and cover versions by Toro Y Moi, DNTEL, Bibio, Javelin, YACHT, and more.

Neon Indian will be heading to Australia for the festival circuit before returning to the States in February to open for The Flaming Lips in Dallas, TX.
