Spanish Moss & Total Loss has been among my favorite albums of the year, and now the band behind the album, Shout Out Out Out Out, has given us a video for opening track “Now That I’ve Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better”. Directed by Lyle Bell & aAron munson, the video features an amusing concept: people falling over in chairs.
That’s it. That’s the whole video. Nothing else.
It’ll put a bit of a smile on your face, and you’ll be hard-pressed to look away.
Spanish Moss & Total Loss has been described as Shout Out Out Out Out’s most melodic and textured effort to date and with “Now That I’ve Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better”, you definitely get that impression.
It’s somewhat of a departure from the band’s first few records, but (not to discredit their prior work) it’s a welcome one. Spanish Moss & Total Loss presents the band growing as musicians and songwriters, and at the forefront of this blossoming is this track.
Grab the MP3 to sample below and check out the excellent video by Lyle and munson. Then go grab Spanish Moss & Total Loss from Normals Welcome Records
