Video: Animal Collective – “Applesauce”

Warning: if you have any lights on around you, turn them off before viewing this. That’s because the new video for Animal Collective’s latest track “Applesauce” is meant to be seen in the dark. And with a strobe light of flashing colors as the backdrop, it’s easy to see why. Directed by Gaspar Noé, the clip stars model Lindsey Wixson (who sensually eats various fruits) and features elements from Paul Sharits’ 1968 short film “N:O:T:H:I:N:G.” The band is set to hit the road this spring for their 2013 North American tour, and will be joined by labelmate and producer Dan Deacon.
