WATCH: Tame Impala Releases Trippy New Video For “Elephant”

Though Tame Impala's latest LP, Lonerism, won't be out in the U.S. until October 9 (via Modular Recordings), we've all had the Australian psych rock act's first single, "Elephant," on repeat since mid-summer. As of today, we can now put a super vivid image to this thumping, perfectly relentless single, that continually hits us as hard as a stampede of under the influence elephants. 

Check out the trippy, analog synthesized, three-and-a-half minute clip of live footage of the band, expertly distorted by artist Yoshi Sodeoka. There's also occasional spectral and skeletal cameos, plus the consistent suspicion that a lava lamp must have exploded like everywhere
