On one hand, their music is upbeat, tropical, and bright. On the other hand, their music is dark, eerie, and chilling – especially when paired with their music videos.

L.A. tropical-noise pop duo Bür Gür are releasing their sophomore album Have You Lost Your Faith In God? on April 1st, and the first single “Neighbors” was released back in November with the accompanying video about a stalking neighbour.

Now the childhood friend duo have shared their latest single “If I Was A Child” along with the music video. Their usual tropical pop sound of slow, grooving bass lines and rippling guitar parts is mixed with laid-back Afro-Cuban rhythm and dreamy vocals reminiscent of Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. A heavy dose of psychedelic instrumentation takes on an Animal Collective-esque playfulness, as the music video depicts a child’s psychological exploration of the afterlife after discovering a dead body in the woods.
