Boxed In, the London-based four-piece that's the project of producer/musician Oli Bayston, are releasing their sophomore album, Melt, on September 23 via Nettwerk. Now they have shared a video for Melt single "Jist." The dizzying video never lets up, as an older man in a suit travels across a psychedelic landscape that includes giant fish invading a city and endless spiral stairs. Watch it below.

Wayne McCauslin directed the clip and had this to say in a press release: "The music video for 'Jist' came about initially when incorporating Oli's liking for surrealist artists that we both admire, I drew a lot of inspiration from the likes of F. Bacon, Escher, and Hitchcock whilst trying to keep things funky. Oli's composition offered me a lot of visual ground for adding elements and glitches here and there, so the creative process felt very natural and it was fun to play with.

Bayston added: "I think Wayne has done an incredible job with the video. He's managed to adopt my lyrical themes of paranoia and claustrophobia and actually make them fun! Quite an achievement. He's also created a world I'd love to visit some time."
