When The Flaming Lips released the first single off The Terror a few weeks ago, it was pretty clear why they considered the album to be so … well, terrifying. “Look … The Sun Is Rising” was noisy and anxious, psychedelic in the most unsettling sense of the word. Now the band has released a visual trailer with a medley to give listeners a taste of each song, and every one of them hits like a particularly bitter tab of acid. Even the brightest moment, “Try To Explain,” feels creepy, with Wayne Coyne singing sweetly over an ominous sea of wobbling synths. Add in the trailer’s visuals, which look like rotten rainbows, and The Terror is looking to be the Lips at their darkest. Check the video out below.
The Terror is out April 1st worldwide and April 16th in the US on Warner Brothers
