Bür Gür Official Video for "Neighbors" - The First Glimpse into the Upcoming Album "Have You Lost Your Faith in God?"
Bür Gür is the LA based art / indie / electronic ambient / chill wave / pop outfit of Corbin Clarke and Makan Negahban. Sure that is a lot of descriptors but then their dreamy songs that blend the organic and synthetic are difficult to describe but so easy to experience. They released the vast debut Alligator Cheesecake (on How to be a Microwave Records) last year and are about to release their second sonic affair entitled Have You Lost Your Faith in God?
"Neighbors" is the first peak aurally and, thanks to Cosmic Shrug Productions, the first look into the upcoming album experience. The video as directed by Dustin Krapes is comically creepy. It stars Ryan Bergmann from the band RETOX who instantly made me think of Mac DeMarco. Maybe his cagey brother from another mother or something. Bergmann slowly becomes unhinged as a stranger played by Phill Miller begins to invade his personal spaces and psyche with dark consequences. Le'Lani Lan'caster who I had the pleasure of seeing a few times in the band Washing Machines (in an around LA) also makes a brief appearance. The video is truly awesome as is the song. If "Neighbors" is any indication of what direction Bür Gür is headed then Have You Lost Your Faith in God? portends to be a special album and possibly a bit more accessible than their far reaching debut. Only time will tell and I am waiting eagerly.
