Watch A New Dirty Projectors Video For "Gun Has No Trigger"


We're pumped for Dirty Projectors' forthcoming album, Swing Lo Magellan (out July 10th via Domino) and, after sharing their lead single "Gun Has No Trigger" last month, we have our hands on the accompanying video.  If, like us, you watched the video and were immediately reminded of those famous iPod commercials, that was intentional.  Frontman David Longstreth, who directed the video, said in a press release that the band "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)."  And as for a broader message, Longstreth says the song is about "the possibility for true dissent, and how I can't figure out what that could be."

We'll let Longstreth ponder the big questions while we enjoy his music.
