In celebration of The B.E.F.'s return with their brand new album 'Chapter Two: Konstellation Neu' out March 26 and their debut performance at The Great Escape Festival in May as part of the Erased Tapes 5th Anniversary Night, the band reveal the official music video for album opener 'Commotion'. Singer Aid Burrows gives us access to a different side of his creative process by creating a playful and heartfelt 3D animation, centred around the waterfront.
'The tactic we've used is the 'more' method. More sounds, more layers, more people. More face to face, more angles, more songs. If we've done our sums right, it should total more than the individual pieces', explains Burrows.
Coincidentally, the upcoming Great Escape Festival will also take place beside-the-seaside in Brighton on England's sun-drenched south coast and see The B.E.F. perform an Erased Tapes-curated label night alongside Nils Frahm and A Winged Victory For The Sullen, co-presented by Drowned In Sound.
Tickets are now available from the official festival site: escapegreat.com
