The Mynabirds Release 'Body of Work' 7-Inch, New Video


Having just released the limited-edition, colored Body of Work 7” on Saddle Creek this week, The Mynabirds commemorate the occasion with the accompanying video for “Body of Work.” With syncopated beats and playful thumps, layered on top of Laura Burhenn's gospel inspired tone, Burhenn illustrates a playfulness as she combines nature and art in the video. "[Director] Allie [Avital Tsypin] and I wanted to create this enchanted world that was basically a collection of moving surrealist paintings inhabited by these pure, joyous people,” explains Burhenn. “And the cinematographers, set designers and cast made it happen in a serious way."

“’Body of Work’ is a reminder of our absolute power to reimagine, redesign, and transform our lives at any given moment into something we enjoy to the utmost, something that’s wholly and fully our own,” says Burhenn. “We are not victims of the past, but artists who can shape it into the most brilliant form imaginable; we are living things, bodies of work to edit.”

Only 1,000 copies of the limited-edition, colored Body of Work 7” vinyl are be available, which features the standout track “Body of Work” from their 2012 critically acclaimed album Generals, and paired with the previously unreleased “In the Mouths of Wolves.” The record is housed in a 4-panel jacket that can be folded into an origami wild horse, representing the idea of transformation instilled in the title track. Purchase the 7” compilation at the Saddle Creek store or digitally at iTunes.
