Panda Bear shares video for new track “Playing the Long Game”

“An undercurrent of speaker-limit-pushing sub-bass low-end.”

Panda Bear—aka Noah Lennox—has shared a video for his new single, “Playing the Long Game.”

In the abstract clip, Lennox takes a walk in drylands as three mysterious masked figures follow him. The Animal Collective member eventually arrives in a dark room where menacing projections of the masked figures float around him, though he swiftly escapes the room and runs away.

On the trap-inflected track, Lennox employs an “undercurrent of speaker-limit-pushing sub-bass low-end,” as per a press release. He added that the song “is about a brief series of thoughts I had one morning about who I am, what I’m doing, and where I’m going.”


Lennox previously dropped his sixth studio album Buoys in February. Also released were videos for album cuts “Dolphin,” “Token,” and title track “Buoys.”
