In line with Miike Snow's previous release from third album iii, the video for the band's latest single “My Trigger” turns a serious and deadly situation into a full-on musical production. Where “Genghis Khan” played on the relationship between secret agent and mad villain, “My Trigger” takes a closer, old-Hollywood style look at what happens when the Situation Room goes all the way up to 11. What greater trigger is there than the little red button?

Miike Snow: 'Kanye West Is the Most Important Artist of Our Time'

Directed by Ninnian Doff, it's a beautifully-entertaining video for a track that's just as captivating. Still, if “My Trigger” is going to take over a dance floor, it could use a little kick. That's where Higher Self comes in.

This remix is all the things we love about “My Trigger” with a hefty injection of kick drum and synthetic flourishes. It's all about that staccato melodic line which takes the original melody and amplifies it to two minutes to midnight status. Check out the official remix and "My Trigger" music video below. You'll also find dates for the second leg of Miike Snow's North American tour.
