THUNDERLIPS' latest clip for New Zealand's newest alt-pop export indi is a hypnotic and eerie piece of sci-fi body horror.

Managing to tell a claustrophobic fever-dream story without ever deviating from the central framing, we become engrossed by indi staring back at us, enduring medical procedures (complete with some astounding make-up effects) before cutting into a haunting night-vision, and alien ultraviolet world before finally arriving at a place filled with writhing naked bodies. The slow pacing of the video reflects the song's arrangement, making both feel more like movements than scenes or verses. It's fascinatingly sparse but it says so much.
