Premiere: Mod Sun and Machine Gun Kelly team up for the "Shoot 'Em Down" video.
Mod Sun's "Howlin' At The Moon" impressed us with its stylish and psychedelic imagery, but the experimental rapper has really taken things up a notch with his new clip for the Machine Gun Kelly-assisted video for "Shoot 'Em Down".
The song finds Mod once again teaming with frequent songwriting collaborator Black Bear, setting the sonic tone for a classic western plotline. MGK plays a pivotal role in the whole narrative, as well as contributing blinding double-time verse. The song appears on Mod Sun's 2015 project, Look Up, now available on iTunes and Spotify.
Mod Sun shared some thoughts on the new clip via email.
"From the first moment I started making this song with Machine Gun Kelly + Blackbear, I envisioned a mini western movie unraveling. So myself + talkboy TV created a tale of two lovers who are torn away from each other by a pack of bandits. I embark on a journey through the desolate desert sands of Joshua Tree, determined to save my love from the clutches of psychotic bandits holding her captive...but my optimistic bravery takes a turn for the worst when I find myself staring down the barrel of a gun. As I take my last breath + embrace my obvious demise...Machine Gun Kelly comes riding in on a horse—and things begin to Look Up."
