Still riding high off the announcement of Little Dragon’s forthcoming Nabuma Rubberband LP? I know Meka is. Anyways, a day after the Swedish trip hop collective dropped their new single “Klapp Klapp,” we’re gifted with the official music video.
“There’s something primal and eerie about the song… the drums feel ceremonial, you know? The original treatment I wrote was set in Mexico, in the kind of cemetery where Michael Douglas wakes up in The Game. But then we incorporated the voodoo element, and the Dominican Republic came up. It was Ivan Herrera, a great local producer we had with a great crew, that suggested the remote church location. Almost all of my writing has female leads; they’re just more interesting to me. Although it was a tough shoot she was a total pro throughout. I can’t recommend shooting in the Dominican enough – I’d go back in a second.” – Director Taylor Cohen [Dazed]
Nabuma Rubberband impacts May 13th. Pre-orders available now on iTunes.
