"Old Graffiti" (video)

The country's been thawing in the lead-up to the release of Adrian Teacher's new Sorta Hafta EP, but there's plenty of snow to be seen in the cozy new video for the set's softly sung, Julie Doiron-assisted "Old Graffiti."

The track finds Teacher's baritone and Doiron's hush analyzing relationships with both music and people ("My songs are my friends, they never let me down / They never forget to call, they never leave town"), while a rustic, country-dusted arrangement features additional accompaniment from pianist Chris-a-riffic and violinist Adrienne Labelle.

As for the video, it finds a young couple and their pooch exploring snowy terrains before getting back indoors to tend to an injured hand, as well as enjoy hot baths, fruit smoothies, and a couple episodes of Judge Judy. Who could blame them!

Sorta Hafta will be released May 5, and Teacher will be supporting the set on a summer tour with Shotgun Jimmie, as well as a solo show in Vancouver.
