Dirty Projectors – “Gun Has No Trigger” Video

By Corban Goble / June 8, 2012

Here’s the Dave Longstreth-directed clip for Dirty Projectors’ “Gun Has No Trigger,” a simple clip filled with Dave Longstreth, Amber Coffman, and Haley Dekle-shaped silhouettes, a strobe light, and a backdrop of alternating color. Longstreth says (via press release):

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!!
