Having finished the end of last year with a stunning animated video for the previously unreleased ‘If Not Now, Then When?’, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have released another track which is accompanied by a kaleidoscopic cut and paste video.
Talking about the video for ‘O.N.E.’, director Melbourne based videographer Alex McClaren said “The song itself feels as if it’s constantly moving along so I tried to keep the visuals continually moving forward and sliding into different visual styles and landscapes. I felt the mix of stop motion and collage through the use of found imagery and the band would help compliment the tracks lyrics and themes as I interpreted them, of dreams, nightmares, climate change, dystopias, and utopias, as well as referencing events that took place during the making of the video over 2020. All video of the band was shot by Ambrose during the second lockdown restrictions and I had to give notes on shooting and direct remotely which was strange but so was everything during that period.”
‘O.N.E’ is taken from the band’s as yet unannounced follow up album to K.G. Stu Mackenzie in response to recent rumours about the new album said “King Gizzard’s new album (y’all know what it’s called) is definitely not coming out in February.”
