Watch: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share animated video for ‘Countdown’

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share animated video for ‘Countdown’

The track’s lifted from new album ‘Sketches of Brunswick East’.

Back in August, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard surprised released ‘Sketches Of Brunswick East’, the third of the five albums the band are supposedly releasing this year.

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.
