While working as the openers for Bright Eyes‘ recent tour, the Mynabirds recorded some behind-the-scenes footage. The band has edited these clips into a video for the song “LA Rain,” off of its 2010 debut LP, What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood. The video was directed by Shervin Lainez and features some great mug shots of frontwoman Laura Burhenn (who also toured as a member of Bright Eyes), as well as wistful shot-from-the-car road video. As all tour documentaries must be, “LA Rain” is shot in artsy black-and-white. Watch it below.



At present, the Mynabirds is busy writing new material and touring with Bright Eyes. By September, the band will go into the studio, chirping away.
