New Beard, Ben Wigler’s newest project, has released a music video for their track, “Given”. The band’s leader, Ben Wigler, has been on the music scene peripherally for a few years, as a member of Arizona and as a backing vocalist for the Indigo Girls, Dead Confederate, and Samantha Crane. Now Wigler and his new crew have a new EP, The Moment of Peace, which is available to download now from their website, and which drops more tangibly on November 15. They are also working on a debut full-length with the help of their producer, Gustav Ejstes of Dungen.
The clip for "Given" follows a well-dressed kid as he walks around town, looks at a sideways boat, a church, and some grass before he starts dancing in sparkly black garb. The track is enticing with its ability to use a panflute and a progy guitar track without immeditately putting the listener to sleep. The real, highlight, though, are Wigler’s vocals, which compliment the rest of the band perfectly. Check out the video below.
