Boogarins – “Benzin” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The Brazilian band Boogarins just finished up an American tour where they shared the stage with artists like Andrew Bird and Dugnen, and they’re currently in Lisbon gearing up to perform at Rock In Rio. Today we’re premiering their music video for “Benzin”, a song off of the 2015 LP Manual. Not unlike the song, the video starts off organic and peaceful, until more surreal imagery takes hold later on before the track breaks down and disappear into a dreamy landscape. Perhaps garnering influence from trends that took hold of Brazil in the ’60s like Tropicália, the band puts a colorful spin on a classic surf sound. Watch below.
