UK band Psychedelic Porn Crumpets takes us to a color-popping 2D galaxy in their new video “Keen For Kick Ons?” Think about alien wars, stars, random explosions, and the band playing a show in the middle of it all. It pretty much looks like the byproduct of a visual artist who may or may not have gotten high and decided to recreate the glorious old school days of arcades:

“We originally put out a pitch asking for animators to create an energetic music video that explodes out of Keith Richards’ left nostril and ends up in a Mighty Boosh skit, primarily aimed at troopers who put DMT in their Cheerios. Ollie quickly got in contact and pitched us with this great idea that explored a variety of different animation styles. We loved the concept as the album travels through a bunch of twisting passages resembling a collage of sound, Kick Ons is one connecting piece in the Pez dispenser and that overload of jam packed flavour is what we’re about. We love the energy Ollie has captured and it gives the song an extra quirky push which we’re always game for” shared frontman Jack McEwan.

The quartet is currently on their Euro tour and will be hitting Amurricaa in May-ish:
