About the video, from the director Linda Mai Green: “Your Favorite Color” conjures today’s extreme gender politics with an occult twist. A pack of bloodthirsty witches hunt musician Brogan Bentley amongst a haunting backdrop of Northern California redwoods. The costumes mix pagan with pageant queen, backwoods and baroque. The women behind the video, director Linda Mai Green and designer Isabella Hill, have been friends and collaborators since preschool. They are on a mission to merge Horror and Western genres for the 21st century. Bentley is their latest victim."
Brogan writes: "This song is a story with multiple layers: One’s relationship with the feminine spirit of nature and the impending destruction of all things man made. To “be like water", from which the first forms of life existed and emerged. How consciousness originates in etherial bodies and exploding stars and the revelation of knowing that we are part of that same cosmic tapestry.
But in posing a seemingly simple question, a new dimension is unveiled. The subject is forced to consider an array of possibilities so vast as the spectrum of light: black to white and everything in-between. Access to such essential understandings arise only when the ego has been stripped away. Equally, when the inner clearing in forest of the self is devoid of doubt and fear, universal truths abound.
I awoke one morning out of a deep sleep with crystalline certainty that all color shares a correlating sonic frequency, or tone. To answer the question, much more is revealed than what is just “Your Favorite Color”, but a depth of awareness of both self, sound, stars and where they all merge in your being."

Bedroom minimalist funk that differs from Dam-Funk by remaining grounded rather than completely taking off into the stars. The entire album approaches the whole funk/new jack swing aesthetic with DIY-stained love. mynameisblueskye
