Gurr – “#1985″ Video

Berlin duo Gurr share new video for “#1985.″ It made me a little dizzy and I liked it. Gurr’s Andreya Casablanca shared:

“#1985″ is supposed to be the “Sex Beat” song on the album. Laura was listening to Gun Club a lot when we recorded the album so that influenced the bass and drum recordings. The song is inspired by a lot of the characters we see in Berlin’s nightlife, people who live in this fantasy Rock’n’Roll world and use a lot of ridiculous hashtags. The video stars our good friend and artist Andi. He’s a great artist who studies at UdK Berlin who developed this fun instagram and snapchat persona where he pretends to be someone he’s not. We feel like right now, as an artist or musician, your image on social media is almost as important as your actual work. So the video is really about this struggle – and making fun of our obsession with social media as well.”
