The sophisticated Swedish pop group Little Dragon returns this spring with their new album Nabuma Rubberband, and yesterday, they shared their idiosyncratic, rhythmically driven first single “Klapp Klapp.” They’ve made two videos for that song, and they’ve recruited Nabil, the master of the form right now, to direct one of them. Nabil also served as “creative director,” whatever that might mean, for the video they shared today, but he didn’t direct it himself. Instead, Taylor Cohen directed this version of the “Klapp Klapp” video. The Cohen version is very The Serpent And The Rainbow; it has a very intense lady doing some sort of voodoo raise-the-dead ritual. Check it out below.
Nabuma Rubberband is out 5/13 on Loma Vista.
