riflespiral Video: The Shins   The Rifles Spiral

After floating about the Nintendo 3DS for the past week, The Shins’ latest video for new single “The Rifle’s Spiral” has finally surfaced online. Directed by Jamie Caliri, the stop-motion animated clip recalls past films like James and the Giant Peach and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. “I have always loved Edward Gorey’s illustration work and his influence is apparent throughout the video,” Caliri explains. “Also, seeing Martin Scorsese’s Hugo three times subconsciously veered my thoughts onto the magic theme.” Admittedly, the end result is a tad creepy.

The Shins’ fourth LP, Port of Morrow, is out now via Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records.
