Khruangbin is a three-piece band from Texas, formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums.
‘Infamous Bill’ is an expanded offering of Khruangbin’s individual sound. The EP’s four tracks were recorded at their spritual home, a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside where Khruangbin’s first rehearsals took place.
“The film is an abstract Western about Bill – an outlaw who’s an expert with a bullwhip. He tells us his story of gambling, bank robbing, boozing and brothels by whipping objects in this stunning short full of dark wit and breathtaking slow motion. It shows glimpses of Bill in the darkness but never fully reveals the man behind Khruangbin’s new single, The Infamous Bill.
We wanted to capture the darkness of the character and use this to create intrigue and mystique that compliments the band’s Texas roots and their Tarantino-esque sound. It’s the first film we’ve directed and we hope you really enjoy it.” – Jason Scott & Joris Philippart, Directors
