The Raveonettes provided the director with several song choices, but for her, it was “Killer” right from the get-go. “The song moves you along like something you want blasting on the radio as you drive through the streets of L.A. on your way to meet with destiny,” she says. “I love the idea of heartbreak being something you become contaminated with, sick from. As they say, ‘Hurt people, hurt people’… and if they don’t hurt others they usually break themselves. Love is indeed a dangerous game but it is also the ONE thing we can all universally relate to. Powerful stuff.”
“Killer in the Streets” comes from Pe’ahi , the seventh LP from Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner.
