Following the release of their collaborative EP, Leon Bridges and Khruangbin have shared a new video for “Texas Sun.”
The Philip Andelman-directed video follows a man, who drives across Texas from sunrise until sundown, before he makes a contraption that captures the sunlight in Texas in a box, which he eventually delivers to his girlfriend.
“I had never felt this transported by a song, never felt such a powerful need to shoot anything before in my life,” Andelman explains. “We traveled out to East Texas and just started driving, creating our own set of adventures as we went along: meetings with pecan farmers in Van Horn, mezcal dealers in Marfa, ranchers in Valentine. We didn’t have much gear, just a camera, some incandescent bulbs, a tripod and ratchet straps. We fell into a family of friends in Marfa who took us over the finish line, rustling up wardrobes and cars, a neighbor with a home to shoot in, an ex-boyfriend with a drone. Calling this a labor of love would be an understatement; it was the ride of a lifetime.”
