Oshawa, ON, eight-piece Hairy Holler have described their sound as "sleazy tavern pick pocket music" and they continue to rep that self-adhered label on their latest single "St. James Infirmary Blues." Now they've paired that tune with a brand new video, and Exclaim! has got your first look at it.The song comes from a double A-side single with Fish Head Phil that will be released later this summer, prior to the band heading into the studio to record their sophomore full-length For Mad Men Only.
Fusing folk, punk, blues, jazz, Roma and swing sounds into their unique music, the new video is an equally celebratory affair. It was shot at an array of festivals and parties, including footage from a place affectionately dubbed "Old Mexican Cat Town," a Canada Day after-party in downtown Oshawa, a parade for the 2014 Space Invaders Art Crawl and another parade honouring the Get Bent Records Summer Solstice Celebration from back in 2013.
Evan Hoskin, Matt Manser, Licianny Matos and Bodan Grodesky shot the footage from the various events. You can see the party-packed final product by giving the video for "St. James Infirmary Blues" a watch in the player below.
