Here's Pop. 1280's Brutal New Video For "Bodies In The Dunes"
Here’s the new video for “Bodies In The Dunes,” the latest single from the grating New York cyberpunks Pop. 1280. The video was directed by Jacqueline Castel, a hyper-talented director who makes tense, kinetic work under her Future Primitive production house. Jacqueline’s videos are stark and confrontational—she’s created incredible work for Zola Jesus, Naked On The Vague, Blank Dogs, and a bunch of other pretty bleak and downbeat acts.
The video is not for the faint of heart—it was based loosely on a Long Island serial killer who was responsible for murdering four prostitutes in cold blood and dumping their bodies in “heavy underbrush along a beachfront causeway.”
The track is from Pop. 1280’s recent LP, The Horror, which was released through Sacred Bones earlier this year. You can order the record right here. Jacqueline was also on a panel discussion we hosted at Internet Week this past Tuesday—you can check that out right here.
