Dirty Projectors have shared a new video for their track “Little Bubble”, directed by the group’s own David Longstreth and Adam Newport-Berra (who previously directed the video for “Impregnable Question”). “Little Bubble” follows the release of “Keep Your Name” back in September – the first new Dirty Projectors song since 2012’s Swing Lo Magellan. Longstreth recently worked on Solange’s 2016 release A Seat At The Table.
Social bubbles; cultural and technological bubbles; the bubbles that we create and inhabit in our most intimate relationships: “Little Bubble” is a very timely exploration of the double-edged sword of comfort and insularity, and the trade-offs we make choosing them.
The video explores the metaphor of Earth itself as a fragile bubble of life in a cold, dead universe, building on the visual language of Dirty Projectors’ 2012 short film Hi Custodian.
