The Mynabirds' Numbers Don't Lie

Laura Burhenn has just released the first video from What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood, her debut album as The Mynabirds (in stores now on Saddle Creek).

The clip is for "Numbers Don't Lie," and was directed by Alan Tanner, who has also helmed videos for Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst. Watch it here

You can catch Laura and her band live as they hit the road this month for headlining dates and some slots supporting Josh Ritter, plus a special show opening for Al Green.

Formerly one half of the DC duo Georgie James, Burhenn's vision for The Mynabirds stems from an idea she had to create music that sounded like Neil Young doing Motown. Burhenn eventually found out that coincidentally Neil Young had once played in a band with Rick James that was called The Mynah Birds.
