Trickster Guru Drops “Problem Child” Mini-Film Video

Written by:

Trickster Guru is the alternative rock and electronic project of singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Christopher Caplan.  Trickster Guru’s debut EP Problem Child creatively fuses vintage rock and soul with the excitement and innovation of modern electronic synth-pop. Like a poignant conduit between the past and present, Problem Child draws influence from rock anthem greats such as The Doors and Jeff Buckley, as well as modern electronic artists such as Flume and Skrillex.  The songs on the EP are all held in the thrall of Trickster Guru’s passionate vocals. The added synths and beats from alternative electronic co-producer AWAY allow Trickster Guru to ingeniously create a richly engaging and dynamic sound to the mix.

The Problem Child EP features mastery from Nick Stratton, Jason Aguja, and Dylan Fenley. Trickster Guru reveals, “The new EP was a way of coming to terms with my past – artistically, emotionally and spiritually.”  This is ideally demonstrated with the stunning accompanying music video for “Problem Child”, which was shot in Astoria, Oregon and pulls inspiration from the surreal, gritty, and realistic style of David Lynch.

The video also features the talented musician and model Lindsay Perry.

Trickster Guru continues to organically gain media attention and radio play including NPR, Buzzbands, KCSN, and KXLU. Trickster Guru’s unique understanding of technology intersecting with music via augmented reality shows a focused dedication to the future of music, of which he hopes to create his own path and musical culture.
