This single from former Mint Chick Kody Nielson's solo project could take its name from the music hating creatures in The Beatles' Yellow Submarine or a Balinese mushroom with mind altering properties. Or both. Director Sam Kristofski's video for this shimmering neo-60s pop song — captioned a "Sci-Fi-Delic Experience" — is in the ‘hipster surrealist’ mode (typified by Spanish collective CANADA), with model Zippora Seven hiking in the woods overseen by a golden Buddha with laser beam eyes worthy of Flash Gordon. The trippy animations are by Daniel Foothead.
