The Shins’ new music video for “The Rifle’s Spiral” is a dark tale of the battle between good and evil magicians, told in stop-motion animation. The video was directed by Emmy Award-winning director Jamie Caliri and has a Tim Burton vibe.
The video follows a bejeweled magician playing to an invisible crowd who “borrows” a rabbit from a cruel sorcerer. When they track down the thief, things get a little wild.
“The Rifle’s Spiral” is the lead track from their latest album, Port of Morrow.
