Flying Lotus danced children through death with “Never Catch Me” and explored the most grotesque, ghoulish thoughts imaginable with the animated “Ready Err Not.”
The impressive streak continues: “Coronus, the Terminator” returns to “Never Catch Me”‘s crisp, light-frayed aesthetic. No goblins or (cannibalistic) murder here — just another stunning piece that follows a transition from life to death, witnessed by the eyes of FlyLo himself. Niki Randa sings in a haunting falsetto, “The days of men are coming to an end.” Such a video is only fitting with that line in mind. One of the final shots finds blown out brains falling to the ground like confetti, perhaps the most powerful frame of this remarkable trilogy.
One of the best surprises here is the elongation of the song itself, clocking in at over five minutes. I don’t know about you, but I’m more than thrilled by the well-executed song stretch; it’s one of Potholes’ favorite songs of 2014, after all.
Prepare yourself to reexamine life’s greatest adversary and watch the video below.
