DO NOT CONSUME ANY SUBSTANCES BEFORE WATCHING THIS MUSIC VIDEO!
Foo Fighters have released a trippy animated music video for their song “Chasing Birds,” from the band’s latest album Medicine at Midnight.
The visual builds off of the song’s first lyric (“Chasing birds to get high/My head is in the clouds”) by depicting Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foos going on a long, strange trip in the desert. After having some fun with the colorful, psychedelic imagery around them, Foo Fighters find themselves entrapped in a dark, spooky cavern — the video’s version of hell as mentioned in the song. What will help the band release themselves from their mental prison? The power of music, of course.
The video has a hypnotic, “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas” kind of vibe to it.
Eagle-eyed fans have also pointed out that the clip contains a number of references to past videos – including the similarly trippy visuals of ‘Everlong’.
