"End Of The World" Music Video by Hunter Hunted

1362175322HunterHuntedEyesClosedIn the post-apocalyptic future, survivors of the human race will live in a perpetual state of primalistic survival while wearing flamboyant war paint –or at least, that’s what director R.J. Sanchez envisioned for Hunter Hunted‘s “End Of The World” music video. Shot around the “East Jesus” community in Slab City, the video follows the Echo Park-based band (Michael Garner and Dan Chang –formerly of Lady Danville) exploring desert home ruins, fishing in the Salton Sea, burning cars, and being chased by gorgeous women with guns. The visuals are a stark contrast to the duo’s effulgent harmonies and buoyant beats, but it works:

Hunter Hunted will continue their March residency at the Bootleg Bar this Monday, March 18th along with TheBlack&TheWhite and Bom Bom presented by KROQ Locals Only.

"Future" by the black and the white

IMG_4928_edit_step2_b_onlineFormer As Tall As Lions members Julio Tavarez (vocals/guitar) and Cliff Sarcona (drums) are now the black and the white. Practicing out of Silver Lake, the duo has been busy with producer Justin Kaupp on recording their debut EP to be released this spring. In the band’s bio, Tavarez says:

“I love music that physically moves me, music that makes me want to get out of my chair.”

And with this new project, he’ll certainly succeed. So far, the band has leaked the single “Future” which can’t decide if it’s mostly electro-rock or dance pop –but it nails both with an infectious chorus:

“I don’t want to live in the future,
I don’t want to live in decline,
I just want to live forever,
and leave it all behind.”

All this time, Tavarez has just wanted to make people move… and now he will:

And here’s a teaser montage video created by Meritime in case you need visuals to help you dance:
