In the video for “Buddy Dash,” the new single from Chainsaw Kittens’ Tyson Meade, four travelers in weird warlock robes wander dead-eyed through the woods as Meade’s fizzy, psych-informed power pop blasts away behind them. Though they’re taking separate paths, they all seem driven by a similar force, all heading to the same destination, for the same reason. When they finally arrive, things take a turn for the mystic.

The video, which also stars Don Bolles (The Germs), Charles Fleische (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Nicole Fiorentino (Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt) and Maggie Brown, is a perfect match for the music: swirling, candy-coated psychedelia as long on hooks as it is on supernatural charm.
