Good news for fans of The Mynabirds: The Laura Burhenn-led, Omaha-based collective has released a limited edition seven-inch single for the song “Body of Work.” Saddle Creek has pressed only 1,000 copies to colored vinyl, so these are sure to move quickly.
The single features the song “Body of Work” from the group’s 2012 critically acclaimed album, GENERALS, as well as a previously unreleased track titled “In the Mouths of Wolves.” The record is stored in a four-panel jacket that can be folded into an origami wild horse, symbolizing the idea of transformation instilled in the title track.
The Mynabirds commemorate the occasion with an accompanying music video. With syncopated beats and playful thumps, the gospel-inspired tone of singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn illustrates a more playful female vocalist. She combines the beauty of nature with the complexity of art in this video. The video’s director, Allie Avital Tsypin, and Burhenn decide on creating an enchanting world that contains a collection of moving surrealist paintings inhabited by these pure, joyous people.
Check out the video for “Body of Work,” with its indie-pop beats and sensitive hues below. Definitely worth watching.
