Calling all maritime fans! Boats go kaleidoscopic in CAS's video for The Future Does Not Require

Ahoy there, cosmos-bound naval vessels! Have a watch of Conquering Animal Sound's Sally Sibbet-produced video for 'The Future Does Not Require', which features footage of a whole host of military boats, spliced apart and then tinted in a full range of psychedelic hues.

The track itself is another excellent piece of electronica-pop from CAS, following on from 'Ultimate Heat Death Of The Universe' - flute and organ tones interweave underneath Anneke Kampman sounding at her most Björk-like, while a drum machine turns over with triplet beats, dropping out for a mesmeric coda.

'The Future Does Not Require' is taken from On Floating Bodies, out on March 18 via Chemikal Underground.
