When No Age decided they wanted to make a follow-up to 2010's Everything in Between, the Los Angeles art-punks decided that they would actually make a follow-up to 2010's Everything in Between. "Well, I want to manufacture it," singer-drummer Dean Spunt told SPIN recently. "Manufacture the cover, manufacture the label, manufacture the vinyl." So, in true DIY fashion, No Age pressed thousands of physical copies of their latest album, the soon-to-be-released An Object

The full-length isn't officially out until August 20, but Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall have already shared a host of tracks from the upcoming record: "C'mon Stimmung," "No Ground," "I Won't Be Your Generator" (via live footage), and "An Impression." That last tune is the inspiration behind the duo's newest music video, above. As a song, "An Impression" is a beautiful bummer, a string-enriched sleeping pill; as a visual, it distills the hands-on process behind No Age's fourth LP. In the best way possible, this clip looks very much like a work still in progress. There's no narrative, both band members only make fleeting appearances, and the camera focuses mainly on (of course) a box-shaped object that continuously changes colors, shifting between red, orange, purple, and more.

"Speaking in shades," Spunt sings. "I've never seen color act this way." Witness it above.
