In Their Words: “Who doesn’t love watching a bunch of accordions being smashed to bits? I wanted to celebrate the release of our new single, ‘Acadiana Girls,’ with a video depicting the chaos that ensues when children discover a stash of prized instruments. Acadiana is the Cajun region of Louisiana and the home of the song’s narrator. With its rich musical heritage, cuisine, and close family ties, it’s a place he loves deep down but needs to leave for now. This need to escape from Lafayette, Louisiana, ties in with the video’s theme of accordions being destroyed. I can definitely relate to this as an accordionist who loves Cajun music but also writes tunes for different genres. I feel that same push-pull between the urge to write original songs and the need to perform traditional music that never fails to pack a dance floor. That said, smashing these instruments with my two sons is probably the most fun I’ve ever had!” — Nicolas Beaudoing, Runner of the Woods
