“Toy Spark Gun” the song from French duo SALM featuring Dan Black, is a kaleidoscopic whirl of synths and strings, a mix of technology and traditional instrumentation, on its own. But the video hammers that description home, with a dancer in long flowing robes weaving and bending her way into a literal kaleidoscope of light.
“We’re really excited about our new music video because it’s a kind of ‘back to the roots’ for us,” the duo explained. “In fact it’s been a few years that we didn’t appear in our own music videos, and this time we’re playing inside. There’s a kind of metaphor of the musical creation / composition with the girl who’s dancing between us and she’s kind of making the alchemy between acoustic and electronic, between the violin and the cello.”
