UNDER THE RADAR: Mount Kimbie – “Blue Train Lines” (Official Video) ft. King Krule.

Electronic duo Mount Kimbie announced their first album in four years, Love What Survives, and released the first single “Blue Train Lines.”

Now they’ve shared the official video for the King Krule collaboration. Directed by Frank Lebon (Frank Ocean’s “Nikes”), the clip follows two anthropologists as they study the life of an American Indian.

The story is based on the historical case of an indigenous man that anthropologists named Ishi who survived the 1865 Three Knolls Massacre, which virtually destroyed the Yahi nation. He died of tuberculosis only five years after he was captured by authorities and taken to be studied at the University of California.

Love What Survives is out September 8 via Warp Records.
