Alex G Shares Video For “Bug”

Alex G Shares Video For his new single "Bug" the track comes off forthcoming LP 'Beach Music' Out Oct 9TH

“Bug”, the lead track from Alex G’s forthcoming album Beach Music, is now accompanied by a video. Shot in Ojai, California, and directed by Micah Van Hove.

Says Van Hove of the video:

“The music of Alex G carries such vivid stories, fleeting moments and cunning characterization that one can’t help but think visually while listening. The idea here was to explore the cyclical nature of a relationship, the addictive quality of love and the joy and confusion it brings. To experience one full turn of the clock, toying with commitment and the flighty nature of the self. We shot over 2 days in my hometown of Ojai, CA on 4th of July weekend with an extremely hardworking and talented cast and crew.”

Alex G’s forthcoming new album Beach Music will be out via Domino on October 9, 2015. The album, his seventh full-length, follows on from previous albums DSU (Orchid Tapes), Trick, and Rules.

Beach Music was written and recorded in Giannascoli’s apartment, between the Fall of 2014 and the Spring of 2015, during breaks from touring with Elvis Depressedly, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Gardens & Villa. While its predecessors often came in uninterrupted bursts—from his head to his Bandcamp page in a matter of hours and days—Beach Music was shaped in part by Giannascoli adapting to life as a touring musician. Songs were written within months of one another rather than all at once, with influences ranging from noise music to piano-based laments to Southern rock to the rhythmic focus of techno—whatever he happened to be most interested in at the time. “Every song is coming from a different place,” he says. “It branches off in all these directions, but it has its own sound. It’s not something I do intentionally, but I’m the common thread.”
