Video: Dirty Projectors - Gun Has No Trigger

Monday 11th June, 2012 9:18AM

Dirty Projectors have released  a new video for latest single 'Gun Has No Trigger' from new album Swing Lo Magellan out July 9th. Directed by frontman David Longstreth, the video is initially unassuming, much like the track itself, increasing in intensity as the song progresses. Shortly after releasing the video Longstreth released a statement explaining his inspiration for the clip...

"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!!"
