Avery Tare – aka Dave Portner – of Animal Collective has shared a trippy new music video for his tune “HORS_.”
The swirling track comes off the producer’s new Cows on Hourglass Pond – out March 22 on Domino Records.
“To me, this video is just about the beauty of a horse, its movements, expressions and textures,” director Abigail Portner (who is also Avey Tare’s sister) wrote of the project. “I lit the horse, Calliope, like she was on a stage, colored lights and haze to take it out of context of a normal stable setting, turn the focus to the horse as a character and make it a bit more surreal.”
Recently, Avey Tare dipped his toe further into the Grateful Dead/psychedelia world, collaborating with Mickey Hart on the Rhythm Devil’s 2017 RAMU album.
“I was a little uncertain what my role would be or what it would be like working with Mickey,” Portner told Relix at the time. “It lives up to all I had come up with in my own head, in terms of that process and everything I’ve taken from the Dead’s music.”
