Harper Simon has premiered the music video for ‘Bonnie Brae’, which is the first single off his sophomore album ‘Division Street’, which was directed by George Salisbury, who is best known for his work with The Flaming Lips.
“I felt challenged and inspired by the idea of making a modern psychedelic folk-rock album,” says Simon. “Elliott Smith was very influenced by the Beatles but my guitar playing is more influenced by Keith Richards. And I kept wanting to emphasize more lo-fi elements.”
‘Division Street’ was recorded with a small number of guest musiciansÃ¢â‚¬”including Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello’s Attractions on drums, Nikolai Fraiture from The Strokes on bass, vocals by Inara George, Feist’s musical director Brian LeBarton playing synths, as well as Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes and Wilco’s Mikael Jorgensen.
