Panda Bear Shares “Tropic Of Cancer” Video

Just days before Panda Bear takes off on his spring tour dates which include back to back weekends at Coachella, he has shared a video for “Tropic Of Cancer” off his latest album Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. The Dave Portner-directed video explores “the leitmotifs –family, the animal kingdom, death’s inevitability are touched on in arrestingly beautiful color,” according to the press release.

Partner had the following to say about the video:

“It’s always been in the spirit of Animal Collective to want to collaborate in many artistic ways with each other. Having been a fan of Noah’s music since we were teenagers, it’s sweet to finally be able to collaborate with him on something other than just making sounds and songs. I also am thankful to get my first shot at making something a little more long running in the visual/video world. This is one of my favorite songs on the record, hence my being involved with it. I’m grateful and excited to have worked on every moment of it and to have worked with all the sweet people who helped me put it together.”
