Khruangbin: “Pelota”

by Rupert Bottenberg

In just a couple of weeks, that Texan triad of trippiness Khruangbin will release their latest album, the eagerly anticipated Mordechai. In the meantime, they’ve just released a video for the tasty track “Pelota”, an extracorporeal journey through a dimension of geometric enigmas, animated by Glassworks Creative Studio. “A Texan band with a Thai name singing a song in Spanish, loosely based on a Japanese movie,” that’s how Khruangbin explain the song, but for the video, we’ll quote its lyrics as sung by bassist Laura Lee, “perdido en una casa surreal” – lost in a very strange house.
