When a hungry astronomer falls asleep while working on a problem, he discovers a solution not in outer space, but in the surreal food-chain of his subconscious mind.

This video was made without the use of hallucinogenic drugs. Join Yeasayer on a cyclical journey between planets and seasons. Lest we forget migrating beetles, cosmic apple orbits, and primal spirits. Inspired by the band's polyphonic harmony and tribal sound, we imagined this surreal world using a combination of stylized animation and live-action. Wait for the Summer made "best music video" shortlists by Spin Magazine, Pitchfork Media, and VH1's Best Week Ever.
