To celebrate release day, Gorilla Vs Bear have premiered the stunning new video for “Global Girlfriend” directed by Allie Avital Tsypin from an idea conceived by herself and Solar Year. You can view the video here.
Some words on the footage from the guys:
“The music video for “Global Girlfriend” is essentially a series of “paintings” that explore sacred spaces, death, relaxation, and ideas of paradise.
It was the product of a series of conversations between us and the director Allie Tsypin. References included everything from Tarkovsky’s Stalker to spas, churches, research about the afterlife, Tilda Swinton fashion spreads, Mormon tabernacles, and 80s Scandinavian craft art. Ultimately we were interested in the connection between death and “relaxation”.”
