Watch: The Shins ‘The Rifle’s Spiral’ New Music Video

Written by Brayden Darke on April 18, 2012

The Shins‘ new music video for The Rifle’s Spiral has now been released online, after previously being exclusive to Nintendo 3DS owners only. This clip follows up on the first video for their track Simple Song, but this time it is directed by Jamie Caliri, who conjures up a creepy animation for the indie rockers.

Speaking to Nowness.com: “I have always loved Edward Gorey’s illustration work and his influence is apparent throughout the video,” says Caliri, who sketched images for the video’s concept from lyrics, that turned into a stop motion video. “Also, seeing Martin Scorsese’s Hugo three times subconsciously veered my thoughts onto the magic theme.”

The Shins’ latest album Port Of Morrow was released in March. The new album has also brought a new lineup as well, including Fruit Bats frontman Eric Johnson, Richard Swift, Joe Plummer, Yuuki Matthews and Jessica Dobson accompanying James Mercer this time round.
