The third single from Mount Kimbie‘s latest album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, which is available now, gets a visual treatment directed by Marcus Söderlund. Matching the tones of guest vocalist King Krule, the video conveys both a sense of bleakness and wonder. Kai Campos, half of the Mount Kimbie duo, spoke about the song and video with NOWNESS.

What’s the song about? It seems to be a collection of mini narratives.
Kai Campos:
The thing about King Krule’s lyrics is that his style of writing is really stream of consciousness. A lot of abstract, dream imagery comes out, to paint a wonderfully detailed picture.

What was it that drew you to work with Marcus Söderlund?
KC:
 Initially, I was a little bit wary of its urban look, but the quality of his work and his aesthetic style persuaded me that he was the right person to go with and I love it. The main thing I wanted to avoid was a moral to the story. That’s not what we do musically, and I don’t think that would have worked, especially for this song. So I wanted it to have a lot of strong imagery in it.

Can you tell us what you think is the most successful element of the video?
KC:
The thing I like about it is Marcus’ compassionate portrayal of his characters. You can imagine the location being on the outskirts of any city, really, but he’s not patronizing. He doesn’t give any easy conclusions.
