Animal Collective have unveiled plans for new audio-visual project 'Tangerine Reef'.
The new venture finds the group - Avey Tare, Deakin and Geologist - working alongside Coral Morphologic to construct a full audio-visual album.
Described as "a visual tone poem consisting of time-lapse and slow pans across surreal aqua-scapes of naturally fluorescent coral and cameos by alien-like reef creatures" the project coincides with 2018 International Year of the Reef.
Available on on streaming audio services, CD, and 2xLP from August 17th, the record taps into a subject the American group have been passionate about for some time.
Geologist (Brian Weitz) has a masters degree in environmental policy from Columbia University, while Deakin (Josh Dibb) is also a passionate scuba diver.
Check out the first clip from 'Tangerine Reef' below.
