Puzzle by DD Liu and Josh Alman

Xrayfish is all about the song Rock Lobster by the B-52s, as hinted by the lyric "earlobe fell in the deep", the sick bassline, and the many animals in the video which are mentioned in the song.
You need to use your earlobe to identify the animals in the music, as well as the animals in the video, in order to solve the puzzle.
At one point in the song, the singers imitate the noises of a bunch of sea creatures. The eight sea creature noises in the puzzle's music appear in this section, and so we can identify what eight creatures are making those noises! The noises in the puzzle music alternate between left and right speaker to be more distinguishable. The eight creatures we identify appear in order below.
We can then count how many times each of these creatures appears in the video. Index the number of that sea creature into its name in the song, put in the order of the puzzle music, to find the puzzle answer.
