Bosnian Rainbows Document Tour Life in ‘Turtle Neck’ – Premiere

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez’s new project captures road culture

After an intense experience with his last project, the Mars Volta, guitarist and vocalist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez returned home to El Paso for some much-needed rest. Instead, he found three like-minded musicians who were ready for a new journey.

Rodriguez-Lopez, Teri Gender Bender (also of Le Butcherettes), Deantoni Parks (the Mars Volta’s former drummer) and Nicci Kasper created the alt-rock band Bosnian Rainbows. Their self-titled debut album is out on June 25 on Sargent House (pre-order the album here). Here, you can get an exclusive look at their video for their single “Turtle Neck.”

The band has been on the road consistently since 2012, touring Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and now the States; it makes sense that the video is a high-speed combination of shots of their life on tour. From show setup to hotel room naps and exploring cities, the video is a rapidly moving peek into how wonderful, exhausting, hectic and exciting life on the road can be. As the track progresses from meandering waves of instrumentation into post-hardcore rock, the video becomes a visual assault, each frame lasting for less than a second. It’s surreal, choppy and fascinating.
