No one has ever accused Animal Collective of being normal. In fact, a bit crazy is probably a better description for their music, making it very a fitting title the experimental trio chose for their new song -- "Kinda Bonkers."

The oddly mesmerizing track arrived Monday (Feb. 13) with an announcement of the new four-track The Painters EP, which will be out Friday. The Painters EP includes "Kinda Bonkers" and two other new songs, as well as a cover of Martha & the Vandellas' hit "Jimmy Mack." The collection is a companion to last year's Painting With album and was recorded around the same time. 

"Kinda Bonkers" was released with an equally weird and fun lyric video by Jack Kubizne.
