Strange visuals ignite a surreal narrative in new music video. Is that a walking cloud?

Flying Lotus dropped its fourth album “Until the Quiet Comes” almost two years ago receiving great critical acclaim and fan reception. However, it’s just now that kiwi filmmaker Markus Hofka has released an ethereal and lonely visual companion for the single ‘Phantasm.’

It’s unclear if his film was contracted or simply a fan made homage, but the video plays beautifully in tandem with the aching tones of this haunting song. Wandering the desert with an animistic presence and a sheep-like, if not wooly, companion, the mysterious figure achieves the same ghostly feel produced by the track’s vocalist Laura Darlinton. Shot in the New Zealand desert with little more than a camera and two actors, the short film certainly lives up to the high standards of this influential band.
