A great new video by Fullerton, California’s Cold War Kids lets you play director, producer, roadie, and puppet master.

The three-minute clip begins with the band members’ walking on-screen. Each grabs an instrument and begins to play. And the rest is up to you: Click the overhead color bars to change their instruments, or click on musicians to silence them entirely. There are a number of permutations; for maximum pleasure, start with one isolated instrument and follow it through as you keep adding layers. No matter how you play it, every iteration sounds great.
