Video: Boris Pelekh – Too Much

Boris Pelekh is perhaps best known as his work as the guitarist of early ’00s indie folk sensations Gogol Bordello. Since his time with the band, he’s embarked on a solo career, culminating in his debut EP I See It Now, set for release in June. His latest single is taken from the EP. It’s called Too Much.

By Graeme Smith

Boris brings a touch of the psychedelic to indie folk with Too Much. His vocals are isolated and haunted, delivered starkly against an acoustic guitar melody. The lyrics speak of a failed relationship, and discovering your own self-worth. It’s powerful stuff.

In the track’s accompanying, conceptual video you see Boris stare into the camera, exposed from the waist up while a dancer represents his lost lover. Again, the power of simplicity comes through. You can watch the video below.
