Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks premiere video

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks premiere video for "Strange Colores", the band's forthcoming album Enter the Slasher House comes out April 8th on Domino records


Domino is proud to share the video for “Strange Colores,” the second video from ‘Enter the Slasher House’ from Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks out April 8, 2014(April 7 in the rest of the world). The video was directed by Oliva Wyatt. The song is a love song, drenched in a wall of color: “nicest light you would like a taste,” sings Avey on the track.

Slasher Flicks by name alone is not what it appears to be. Scrambled horror film soundtracks? Not even remotely. A bunch of East Coasters making their quintessential LA album? No, more like escape from LA, say guitar-wielding Avey Tare (of Animal Collective), keyboard player and singer Angel Deradoorian(of Dirty Projectors, Deradoorian), and drummer Jeremy Hyman (of Ponytail, Dan Deacon). If LA is an environment to get lost in, as they claim, this group sewing roots in SoCal have become lost in the best way: relocating and reinventing sounds they’re already skilled in making, sounds that as Avey Tare says, are not only regionally unrestricted but that “come from a place that’s not human.”

The band will head out on a North American tour following the album’s release. Dustin Wong will support all non-festival dates. All dates are below and a special ticket and album bundle is available to purchase now from the band’s site, which also contains live performance footage.
