New Music Video: Dirty Projectors
  • FRIDAY, JUNE 08, 2012

When we watch Dirty Projectors' new video for "Gun Has No Trigger", we see a series of flashing clips of Dave Longstreth, Amber Coffman, and Haley Dekle in front of solid color backdrops. It's simple in its use of silhouettes and light/dark alternation to present minimalist videography.



First time director Dave Longstreth sees a little more:
"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!!

Thanks Dave.

"Gun Has No Trigger" is the first single from the band's new album, Swing Low Magellan , due out June 9th on DDomino Records.
