Atlanta’s Black Lips, described as a “flower punk” band, are currently making a few stops around the US, including New York and Nashville, before stopping in Chicago for Lollapalooza.

Sweeping out from behind a mountain and flying through the air, the Black Lips look like they are engaged in a strange recreation of Quidditch for their new video “New Direction” off the album, Arabia Mountain (which earned a 9/10 review right here at PopMatters).
