New Release & Video: Eleanor Friedberger – Are We Good

Eleanor Friedberger released her new album, Rebound, this past May. Now, she has revealed a brand new video for album standout Are We Good

Take a look below…

Director Gil Kennan says on the track: “ARE WE GOOD? got me hooked the first time I heard Eleanor perform it – a fragment made up of fragments. The imagery in the video is picking up on that theme, the arpeggiating rhythm, and giving shape to it on screen. The process of creating the video was nearly stream of consciousness. My wife Eliza and I sat down at her studio with a roll of green paper and cut out shapes. I animated some of them, made some props, and Eliza created a dress (or 2/3 of one) for Eleanor to wear. There’s a pretty version of the video that is all green-screen, without the chromakey, but it’s too risky to release it… someone could go rogue and composite wacky animal bloopers all over Eleanor”

Friedberger will also be hitting the road this month for a US tour in support of Rebound. Tour dates are listed below, including UK dates next month…
