Published Jun 08, 2012Dirty Projectors are all set to release their Swing Lo Magellan and already shared the lead-off single "Gun Has No Trigger." So it's no surprise that the group are now rolling out their first video in support of the record.
The video is for "Gun Has No Trigger" and was directed by the band's own Dave Longstreth. In a statement, Longstreth had this to say about his directorial debut:
"Gun Has No Trigger" is about the possibility for true dissent, and how I can't figure out what that could be. What is a 2012 Exodus from the Society of the Spectacle (to mix language Situationist and Rastafari)? So we made a video from the iconography of the default profile image used by Facebook and Gmail, and also the look of the classic Apple iPod commercials. The colors in the background are the ones I think of when I hear the harmonies of Amber and Haley (via experimental synesthesia). Enjoy!!
Check it out for yourself below.
As previously reported, Swing Lo Magellan is due out July 10 via Domino.
