The Flaming Lips - "Gates of Steel"

VideosTNDComment

Prolific psych-rockers The Flaming Lips have shared yet another new music video; this time for a cover of Devo's "Gates of Steel." Shot during the same live session as the "Turning Violent" video that dropped last week, the Freedom of Choice cut is brilliantly adapted to fit the radiantly noisy sonic and visual esthetic that the band's been flaunting since The Terror.

The cover comes across as incredibly triumphant in its own right, with it's twangy guitar, deliberate bass, spacey synth, and driving percussion providing a lush backdrop for Coyne's dramatic vocal delivery and mannerisms. To make matters even more epic, there's lots and lots of glitter. Enjoy!
