On their new album Fantasy, the Black Mountain side project Lightning Dust move unexpectedly toward synthpop, and the single “Loaded Gun,” in particular, carries the heavy influence of the Knife. The track’s new video, from director Zachary Rothman, also seems Knife-influenced. It’s a stark montage of dark, discomfiting imagery: sweaty and sinewy body parts, lights moving through dark expanses, a fetus clutching an assault rifle. Who even knows what it all means, but it sticks with you. Check it out below.
Fantasy is out now on Jagjaguwar.
