Jolie Holland | Waiting For the Sun (Video)
It’s been years since I’d last seen Jolie Holland play live, and it’s been three years since her last record, “Pint of Blood” was released — but all is well now that there’s a new LP on the way. Holland released a video for a new track, “Waiting For the Sun”, from her upcoming 11-song release, ‘Wine Dark Sea”, out May 20th via Anti Records. It’s a wonderful bluesy ensemble track, that combines Holland’s familiar and pretty vocals with warm horns, multiple guitars and an upbeat tempo. There’s a playfulness to the track as well as the video, which is like a cool gutbucket getdown. It’s a great, catchy single with an explosive ending of guitar distortion and brass. Video directed by Troy Word. You can pre-order the record at I-Tunes. You can also follow Holland at facebook and twitter. Note: Image above is a screen capture from the video. — David D. Robbins Jr.
