The new Shins video comes courtesy of mtvU’s Breaking The Video, a project though which MTV and Sub Pop joined forces to fund aspiring filmmaker/NYU film student Antonio Campos and give him the honor of directing Wincing The Night Away’s fourth video. In it we see a young girl painting on a canvas, while flashing ‘n’ fluctuating shapes and colors become a dancing, lite-brite skyline. Before long her whole apartment comprises the stuff, and although we have no idea what it all means, we’re suckers for pretty colors. Antonio’s gets an A. mtvU premiered the clip today.
Wincing The Night Away is out via Sub Pop.
