News__ Let’s Pretend

November 07, 2011 | By

Ever been slapped in the face with a leg of lamb? Well…it doesn’t look pleasant.

The new video from The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble’s forthcoming album, “Mr. Machine” is just about as dirty as it is beautiful. Filled with images of debauchery and drunkenness,  “Pretend” is cinematically stunning, while being a little sociologically disturbing. Over-indulgence in food, drink and sex stain this video with what is meant to be fun and ends up being disastrous. The lyrics “Just for tonight, we can pretend to be friends, friends till the end,” are repeated relentlessly on top of piercing violin, anxious piano and depressed horns, which reminds us of frivolous one-night only companionships.

See what we mean by watching The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble’s video for “Pretend” below.
