Dirty Projectors have released a video for ‘The Gun Has No Trigger‘, the first single from their forthcoming LP Swing Lo Magellan, due July 9. The simple clip was directed by frontman Dave Longstreth, and features him, Amber Coffman, and Haley Dekle in matching hoodies with a backdrop of alternating colour. Longstreth explains:
“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!!”
