Seems there are some advantages after all to being signed up as

part of the Mountain Dew-backed Green Label

, as Denton/Dallas ex-pats

Neon Indian

were for the release of

their post-Psychic Chasms, free-to-download single, "Sleep Paralysis."

Namely? Getting a budget to give the song, co-produced by Neon Indian mastermind Alan Palomo and Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor, a slick music video--the band's first official video, turns out--which you can watch by clicking the above image. It's well worth the watch, too, filled with bonkers imagery and copious shots of an unshaven Palomo looking oh-so-contemplative. Also: Backgammon? Sure. Why not?

And, after the jump, just for kicks, check another clip, this one detailing the video's making-of process. If that's your thing.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
