Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks may be a bit of a misnomer for Dave Portner's latest project, seeing that the band's "Little Fang" single owes a sizable debt to disco's flirty shimmy. But "Strange Colores," the newest music video from the supergroup (which features ex-Dirty Projectors member Angel Deradoorian and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman), arrives as advertised. Directed and edited by Olivia Wyatt, "Strange Colores" delivers a rush of, well, strange colors. A bizarre lightshow blinks furiously throughout the kaleidoscopic clip, offering a fitting visual companion to the track's blaring, hyperactive groove. Watch the short above, check out the previously shared video for "Little Fang," and find tour dates below.

"Strange Colores" serves as the penultimate track to Enter the Slasher House, the upcoming debut album by Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks. The 11-song set arrives on April 8 via Domino, and pre-orders are available through the Slasher Flicks' store, Domino's store, and iTunes.
