Oneohtrix Point Never
“Animals” (Director’s Cut)

After seeing a premiere yesterday at the opening for Ecco: The Videos of Oneohtrix Point Never and Related Works at the Hammer Museum in L.A., the video for “Animals” is now available for eyes worldwide. The gorgeous track is a highlight off last year’s Garden of Delete, and its video matches the track’s deceptively placid, curiously unsettling aesthetic. The general setup, conceived by Lopatin and director Rick Alverson, is simple: Val Kilmer is filmed listening to “Animals.”

Watch the video above, and revisit Garden of Delete at your earliest convenience.
