Video of the Moment #2909: Gengahr

Back in the March, Gengahr released their album ‘Where Wildness Grows’. In their effort to keep pushing boundaries, back in September, they released one-off single ‘Atlas Please’. It’s interesting in itself simply for who ended up producing it: Jack Steadman, frontman of Bombay Bicycle Club (you remember them). Although the single’s accompanying promo video has its moment of weirdness, as you might expect from this band based on previous visual efforts, I give them full props for including some truly stunning landscapes here. Watch the video for ‘Atlas Please’ below. Our full archive of Gengahr can be accessed through here.

When Gengahr‘s music first turned up at TGTF Towers a few years, I didn’t really know what to make of them. Were they weird and wonderful, or just weird? Back in March when Carrie and I were preparing to go out to Austin for SXSW 2018, they released sophomore album ‘Where Wildness Grows’, the follow-up to their well-received 2015 debut ‘A Dream Outside’. They’ve now revealed a video for ‘I’ll Be Waiting’, a track appearing on their current album. It features live action and animation and was directed with past video collaborator Jamie Whitby. You can watch the new promo video for ‘I’ll Be Waiting’ below. ‘Where Wildness Grows’ is available now from Transgressive Records. For all past coverage on Gengahr here on TGTF, come through.

As John alluded to this Bands to Watch feature on the band prior to them going out to SXSW 2015, Gengahr have always been a bit…well…spooky. (And it’s not just because their name sounds like a villainous video game character, which the band admitted to Never Enough Notes was their inspiration.) This image hasn’t changed even after the release of their debut album on Transgressive Records, ‘A Dream Outside’, which dropped in June. (You can read my review of the debut here.) They also have finished up a major UK headline tour.

They’ve done so well on their first outing, now they’ve also got a deluxe version of ‘A Dream Outside’ that includes their surprise EP ‘Tired Eyes’ that appeared this month. The title track of the EP has its own promo video that owes much to both the band’s own devoted fans and October’s most important holiday, Halloween (duh). Have a watch of it below.

For all of our past coverage on TGTF on Gengahr, go here. The deluxe version of ‘A Dream Outside’ is available now from Transgressive Records.

Gengahr have a new promo out this week for ‘Fill My Gums with Blood’. Frontman Felix Bushe of the band had this to say about the storyline: “The video is supposed to capture the feeling of nature over nurture. We wanted the video to be very intimate but in this love story it ends with tragedy.”

I have to admit that I was so very chuffed this promo isn’t (entirely) filled with tons of cartoony, fake bodily fluids! And for any men – or any women with low registers such as myself – take good care that you don’t hurt your vocal cords reaching for these falsetto lines. Watch the video below. (I laughed at the end.)

Grab their debut album ‘A Dream Outside’ on Transgressive Records now. For more coverage of Gengahr on TGTF, head here.

Last week, Gengahr revealed this tour video from this past winter, when they went out on tour with alt-J. It’s backed by their song ‘Trampoline’, which figures on their debut album ‘A Dream Outside’, released back in June on Transgressive Records. (Read my review of their debut here.)
