Austin, Texas six-piece instrumental band Balmorhea forged a new direction on their last album release Stranger which saw a broadening of their sound which whilst still recognizable acoustics now blend with electric guitar and percussion …
Stranger explores the kinetic rhythms that dictate our day-to-day lives, fascinated by the wanderlust that drove the itinerant hearts of our earliest settlers and that continues to pulse in the kids roaming Texas’ suburban sprawl. Unsettled, but patient, these songs embrace everyday sensuality, youthful discovery, and nomadic reverie…awe-struck by the divine energy that permeates all of our earthly fauna and flora.
In their latest video for Pyrakantha they emphasize this connection with a video that follows professional skateboarder Danny Garcia as he navigates Los Angeles in the final moments of daylight.
