Khruangbin & Leon Bridges 'B-Side' by Philip Andelman

Rob Ulitski - 13th Dec 2021

Philip Andelman presents his own trippy spin on the Spaghetti Western genre, in this offbeat promo for Khruangbin and Leon Bridges.

Following their collaborative EP Texas Sun, released last year, Khruangbin team up with American soul singer Bridges once again, and in Andelman's video for B-Side, the trio jetting in on a vintage style spaceship before facing off with Bridges, who's arrived in a classic car, in a nostalgic Western set. 

As they face off, gunslinger-style, and then perform the song, the video enters its psychedelic stage. We watch the sky turn into mesmerising oil art, as the group casually keep on playing in the chromatic glow of the peculiar weather event.

"This one was a real labour of love," says Andelman, who also directed the video for Texan Sun. "The shoot itself was a real trial, with a major lighting storm and torrential rain keeping us inside for most of the afternoon, a skeleton crew and broken 16mm film mags that ate up twelve solid minutes of footage and two hours of work."

Andelman reveals that Bridges was also taught how to learn a 'stick-shift' car on set by producer Keeley Gould, as the shoot day ticked away.

"And then there was five months of post as we waited for friends to free up and help us colour, create flying saucers, and film coloured oil in vinegar for the skies. But through and through we all had a blast!"
