Khruangbin - "Maria También"
Saw Khruangbin in Denver last night. This is the tightest trio out there right now. Highly recommended if you can catch them on what's left of their tour with Chicano Batman (who were also excellent).
"The video for the album's first single, 'Maria También' [which just dropped today], tells the story of Iranian women prior to the revolution of 1979. Celebrating their creativity, freedom and ability to express themselves, the video shows a side of women in the Middle East that often isn't seen in the Western world.
The women in the video are all part of a large network of artists, singers, dancers and songwriters who have been either exiled or silenced since the revolution. With the video, Khruangbin hopes to bring these remarkable women back into the spotlight and honour the artistry of silenced women everywhere."
