Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ newest video for “Strange Colores” is a creepy, kaleidoscopic mini film befitting the band’s name. The trio, made up of Animal Collective’s Avey Tare, The Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail’s Jeremy Hyman, are releasing their debut album, Enter the Slasher House, on April 8 via Domino Records.

The video, directed by Olivia Wyatt, has a low-budget feel and primarily involves epileptic cutting between quick shots of lights and various colors. We catch fleeting glimpses of the three band members decked in Halloween-style plastic masks, performing against a colorful skull display. It’s like a trippy, Dia de los Muertos-themed haunted house. The whole thing is a perfect match for the slightly schizophrenic and lo-fi tune. Watch it below!
