New Kaki King Video – “Air And Kilometers”

brandon | May 2, 2008 - 11:47 am

Dreaming Of Revenge has definitely been a big step for Kaki King — as illustrated on tracks like “Pull Me Out Alive and 2 O’Clock,” she’s moved beyond the “guitar prodigy” thing to a straight-up solid, inventive songwriter. (Remember, she really sweat some of those lyrics in the studio.) For now, though, forget half of what we just said, because Kaki’s new stop motion video, created by Melbourne, Australia-based artist Ingrid K Brooker, is for the dreamy Dreaming instrumental “Air And Kilometers.”

Where her last video for aforementioned “Pull Me Out Alive” was made up a million little snapshots (and Tegan & Sara cameos), this one transforms old-time coupons, maps, rulers, marbles, floor wax, plastic cars, and little plastic people into an amber-tinted, patterned world of pinwheels, highways, trees, bridges, and inky rain with no sign of KK anywhere (at least not in the visuals).
