Moon Panda - Gun

 

Moon Panda, the moniker under which the duo of Californian songwriter Maddy Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke collaborate - have revealed a bewitching video to accompany their latest single Gun.

 

The have also announced a free show in London at The Old Blue Last on August 1st with support from White Flowers and Auld.

 

The new video follows a figure played by Myers exploring the mystical charms of a beautiful yet twisted house. The atmospheric but ominous tones within the song itself add to the abstracted feel as Myers experiences the surreal twists and turns thrown upon her by the house.

 

Director of the Gun video Buster Marker Jonsson explains further:

 

"I wanted to play with the perception of reality and imagination. Is the House haunted or is she (Maddy) just losing her grip on reality? Does it even matter if it is real or fake? For me, the only thing that mattered was that she somehow gained something from the experience - took something with her. That lead me to the idea of the lizard, a creature so juxtapose to the surroundings. Is it there to help her, or not? Friend or foe? What role does it play in her life?

 

I wanted to make the house the antagonist of the movie, like a living nightmare testing her. What I find interesting about dreams, is that you are often thrown from one scenario to another. Dreams are incoherent and chaotic, but when you are dreaming, everything feels coherent and normal. I really wanted to convey that feeling in the film, making everything an orderly chaos."
