The album is due for a full release on 13th October, and the Aussie psychsters have now shared a video for its single ‘Countdown’.
A pencil-drawn, animated clip, the video perfectly captures the relentlessness of the band’s music.
“We were listening to compilations of Ethiopian music form the 1960s and 70s a lot,” the band’s Stu Mackenzie about the making of ‘Sketches…’ in a press release. “It was in no way thought-out though. If Murder Of The Universe was our most conceptual and arranged album - then Sketches… is the exact opposite. It was like we were continually jamming with ourselves.”
While we wait for the two remaining King Gizzard albums in 2017, have a watch of the ‘Countdown’ video below.
