The beat goes on: a dazzling new video by Dreckig melts minds
The godparents of the Portland music community, longtime duo Papi Fimbres and Shana Lindbeck, deliver their first-ever music video for their multi-lingual psychedelic cumbia-kraut band, Dreckig. This breathtaking video is a must-see and features the track “Non Zero Sum” from the band’s slapping new album, Digital Exposure.
The opening scene shows the couple adorned in gorgeous golden cloaks, bearing torches, and heading into the forest, inviting the viewer into a deeper, more sacred space. We are embraced by the couple’s visions of crystal prisms hanging about, catching the light and reflecting all the colors of the rainbow, shining like love made visible.
The video was conceived and directed by local filmmaker, Alicia J. Rose, who has worked with such talent as Laura Gibson, Justin Townes Earle, and First Aid Kit. Cinematographer Adolfo Cantú-Villarreal was brought on to work their camera magic, resulting in an astounding 8K picture quality. Many shots are infused with visuals created by local liquid light artist Frank Legarza. Fran Bittakis filled the role as producer, hiring a diverse crew for the shoot with only two weeks to prepare. The video is an artistic feat and was shot entirely at Pinewave Studios, where the band records their albums.
Help the couple celebrate at their release show TONIGHT at Mississippi Studios, with support from Party Witch and Puerta Negra. Live visuals by Ryne Freed. 8PM.
