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. They “Be Gone Dull Cage” video today.
Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth was produced & engineered by Chris Shaw (Wilco, and 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.
