In Their Words: “When it’s time to move on and the story is near its finish you may as well bob your head. This grooving blues track features fat blues guitar and a driving hypnotic rhythm that won’t quit. The story of this video is more of an exposé on the goofiness of vanity, but sometimes trying out a new perspective and look can give you some short term peace and joy, especially after losing someone close to you. No one needs to be alone with that loss, and in life having a crew that can make you laugh and feel good is what makes living special, a notion that this video is driving home. Many beautiful shots captured by our director Bradley Atom of our home city of Pittsburgh were shot on a sweltering June afternoon where the temperatures ticked just over 104 degrees. So of course we decided to shoot a video outside wearing dark heavy suits — brilliant — haha! I think as a band we collectively lost 35 pounds and — true story — our amazing director Brad woke up with sun poisoning! Careful, folks.” — Clinton Clegg, The Commonheart
