The Shins "The Rifle's Spiral" (video)
Published Apr 18, 2012A dark and magical new video for the Shins' latest single, "The Rifle's Spiral," has premiered online. Jamie Caliri directed the clip featuring stop-motion animation reminiscent of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas or a creepier take on Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox.
One of the best moments (spoiler alert!) comes towards the end when a rabbit, a prop for a little girl's hat trick, takes vengeance on a bunch of stern Victorian-looking gentlemen. Check out the video for yourself below courtesy of Nowness.
"The Rifle's Spiral" is the opening track on Port of Morrow, the long-awaited follow-up to 2007's Wincing the Night Away, that was released earlier this year via Columbia/Aural Apothecary.
