“Sleeping With A Friend” can metaphorically trip you up romantically, but Neon Trees did a good job of literally tripping us out with the pop-art inspired video for the song of the same name.

Complete with brightly-colored hyper-saturated visuals, frenetic prints, and Rorschach effect graphics, Neon Trees’ new video is retro-cool while also being like a Timothy Leary-esque acid trip.

The artistry behind the video is thanks to director duo, Brad and Brian Palmer.

They’ve done music videos for TV on the Radio, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and The Killers‘ “Mr. Brightside.”
