Khruangbin 'Two Fish And An Elephant' by Scott Dungate

Khruangbin 'Two Fish And An Elephant' by Scott Dungate

Cat Velez - 7th Oct 2016

Genre-blending Texas funk Trio Khruangbin have released this beautifully cinematic, Tarantino-inspired short for Two Fish And An Elephant.

Largely financed by fans through crowd-funding website Kickstarter, the video follows Two Fish, a bow-and-arrow wielding young woman as she can't help but return to the scene of a massacre she has just committed. Led by a string around her finger, she walks back through the piles of bodies until she is standing in front of the Elephant, managing to find peace and closure with one last dance.

Good friend of the band, Scott Dungate, made this strong directorial debut in collaboration with Somesuch and Wieden+Kennedy, with additional support from The Mill post production, Trim editing and Factory sound design all contributing time and resource to make the video possible.


"I’ve always found the music of Khruangbin very cinematic, as if lifted from a film score. Working with the band, I really enjoyed working out a visual narrative to fit the highs and lows of the song. It’s a beautiful song but it’s also more complex than that.

"I wanted a story that also acknowledged the tracks moments of haunting and melancholy. That’s how we came up with this idea of a break-up, moving on and one last dance. While it was the first film I’ve directed, I was fortunate to be surrounded by some great people who were generous and patient with their time and talent."
