'Blue Train Lines'

Mount Kimbie have shared the intense new video for 'Blue Train Lines'.

The song is a collaboration with King Krule, fusing their damaged beats with his forceful delivery.

The video itself was directed by Raf Fellner and Tegen Williams, and stars Frank Lebon - the clip is a tribute to Ishi, the last of the Yahi people.

Frank says: "The 'Blue Train Lines' video is a fictional re-creation of two Anthropologists (Robert. F. H and Theodora. K played by Raf. F and Tegen. W) who have been called in by the authorities to study a man they seem to believe is the last of the Yahi of California."

"Upon stumbling into civilisation in 1910 the man unknowingly became the life’s work and obsession of a pair of human scientists who housed and cared for him while they studied his every move."

"However, the story takes a turn when the pair fall out and one of them tries to sell all his belongings on eBay. Luckily, the buyer, who goes by the name 'Frank. L', acquires all of the wild man's things, only to reinvest them back into further studies in a tale exploring the lines between student, teacher, collaborator, scientist, historian and friend. Rest in peace Ishi."

Watch it now.

Mount Kimbie will release new album 'Love What Survives' on September 8th.
