Gift Wrap announces debut album Losing Count
For some time, Brendon Avalos has been forging a path for himself among the clamour of emerging indie artists as the bassist and vocalist of Brooklyn punk trio B Boys. Now. Now he is releasing his first solo effort - a full length album entitled Losing Count - under the alias Gift Wrap.
The first single also titled Losing Count is accompanied by a grainy, lo-fi camcorder styled video. It candidly follows Brendon as he travels all over New York on the subway, hopping from line to the next.
He’s always on the move and it’s easy to lose sense of where he’s going and his purpose. Avalos says, "The video was made using a VHS effect app on my iPhone. It creates a voyeuristic quality that I thought was fitting to the vibe. The video was just a basic premise of being in the subway down in NYC and how that constant daily thing is in itself pretty stressful."
Tracklist for Losing Count:
2. Losing Count
3. Current Expulsion
4. Change My Mind
