Few things in modern life compare to leaning back, toking up, tuning out, and delving into some heavy-as-hell psych-rock. French outfit Slift deliver extensively in this regard: they stuffed their February 2020 release Ummon so chock full of heady hooks and rocking leads that the band feels nearly explosive with all the energy they channel. It's all wrapped in a smooth, no-bullshit delivery, the kind that sets any awesome band apart from just the good ones.

And awesome indeed Slift are, as this new music video for "Lions, Tigers and Bears," the big-ass closing epic from Ummon, demonstrates with a particularly straightforward charm. Just the band, the crowd, and the song, nothing more, because nothing more is truly ever needed when your band kicks this much ass. It's hard to get enough of their intoxicating blend of, well, psych-everything -- Slift achieves a jam righteous enough to bump your head but supple enough to invigorate your mind.

Check out an exclusive premiere of the new video below. Stay frosty, everyone.
