[PREMIERE] Leitbur – Strange in L.A. (Video)
Strange in L.A. indeed. Today we bring you the video premiere of L.A.-based Leitbur’s latest single and it’s quite an audio/visual experience. They’ve got a strong new wave vibe with a modern tinge to make their sound just their own. Leitbur began in 2007 with producer/singer-songwriter Jaron Widman and guitarist Jonathan Widman as a production by email project; a modern day Postal Service with a new wave flare, if you will. In their current iteration Jaron is joined by singer/songwriter Samantha Krzyston; giving them that boy/girl duo vibe that just works. I love this tune, so when I got a chance to see the video I was curious the direction it would take. It’s beautiful in its simplicity. Basically letting the streets of L.A. show you how weird they truly are. And the cartoon faces superimposed on all the subjects gives it this anonymity that elevates the whole visual. A fitting complement to a stellar song. Be on the lookout for their forthcoming release The Moment That I Knew You.
