Video: Dirty Projectors - "Gun Has No Trigger"

Dirty Projectors

The video for Dirty Projectors’ first Swing Lo Magellan single “Gun Has No Trigger” also functions as band mastermind Dave Longstreth’s directorial debut; he says he was inspired by classic iPod commercials, Facebook’s default profile image, and synesthesia (colors associated with sounds) when putting together the clip.

Actually, that makes sense – those flushing background colors match the intensity of Haley Dekle and Amber Coffman’s background harmonies, and when the band’s trio of vocalists aren’t strobelit they do look almost like anonymous heads. We just have one point of contention: Dave kinda needs a haircut. Swing Lo Magellan is out July 10.
