Destroyer Shares “Tinseltown Swimming In Blood”

On this very day, we are pleased to share the video for Destroyer’s new single “Tinseltown Swimming In Blood.” The video was directed by KC (aka Karen Zolo) as an adaptation of the much-revered classic film La Jetée, which addresses contemporary issues of identity, borders, and race.

“I’d just had a conversation about artist Chris Marker with a friend when I was approached to make a music video for the upcoming Destroyer album,” said Zolo. “‘You have a month.’ Okay… I had no idea what the song even sounded like, but the only idea I had was to remake Chris Marker’s La Jetée as faithfully as possible. It’s not just an homage to the great cine-poet; it’s also about the medium of film, about still photography. It would have been a billion times easier and less stressful to shoot it digitally, but it was worth it.”

ken, Dan Bejar’s 12th studio album, is out October 20th. It’s available for pre-order right now via: https://destroyer.lnk.to/ken
