Los Angeles-based band Numb.er’s new album ‘Goodbye’ is out now via felte. To mark the album release, Numb.er have shared the official video for Again, which was directed by Travis Waddell . Watch the video clip via YouTube below.
Numb.er is the sonic brainchild of Los Angeles based photographer and visual artist Jeff Fribourg. With a background in graphic design, Fribourg imbues his work with a sense of architectural composition, layering angular guitar riffs and analog synths over throbbing drums and driving bass.
Fribourg developed his love affair with synthesizers — and his open-minded approach to music — as a founding member of LA psych-kraut favorites Froth. However, it was only with the creation of Numb.er that he was able to fully explore his eclectic musical inclinations. Combining elements of punk, shoegaze and post-punk, the project never commits to a singular worldview, allowing Fribourg’s vision to go anywhere without sounding ironic or forced.
With the release of ‘Goodbye,’ Numb.er offers a genre-defying sonic document that finds them maximizing the creative potential of the studio while always remaining true to their dynamic and arresting live sound. Mixed and mastered by Mikey Young of Total Control, Numb.er takes a carefully orchestrated approach to chaos and adds Fribourg’s own subtle knack for memorable hooks and soft, melodic passages.
Numb.er has also announced shows in Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Diego and will be playing next month at SXSW. In Austin, the band will be performing at the Felte / Part Time Punks, Levitation Festival, Burgermania VII and more. All upcoming shows are listed below.
