Kiev Unveils 'Be Gone Dull Cage' Video; Sets Full West Coast Tour with Bad Suns
Orange County alt-rockers Kiev released their debut full-length album, Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth, in October of last year. The band has recently announced a full West Coast tour this August with fellow Californians Bad Suns.
To celebrate, Kiev has unveiled their otherworldly video for Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth LP cut "Be Gone Dull Cage," a track that echoes with funk & psychedelic rock influences. A fitting introduction to the band's unique genre, the video follows the quintet riding bongo drums & floating amongst electrified lily pads. The "Be Gone Dull Cage" video premiered today with NYLON Guys, and you can scroll down to check it out!
Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth was produced & engineered by Chris Shaw (Wilco, Phish, Super Furry Animals), and pays homage to collective band influences & minimalist pioneer Steve Reich. The members of Kiev have strong connections to the world of visual art, and have orchestrated & added a multi-faceted 3D element to their live performances. Additionally, the LP art was originally a band favorite by renowned contemporary artist Walton Ford, who gave the band his blessing to use it as the cover for Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth upon hearing the record & how it spoke to his painting.
