Puppets, Drugs & Guns – A New Music Video from Brother Earth

Sunny Side of the StreetWe’re excited to present the third single taken from Brother Earth‘s latest album Positive Haywires. In contrast to some of the darker moments on Positive Haywires , ‘Sunny Side of the Street’ sees Brother Earth in decidedly upbeat mode. The accompanying playful music video, created by Natalie Van Den Dungen and band members Steve Five and Todd Tobias, features puppetry, guns and drugs, all set against a Brooklyn backdrop. A colourful Jim Henson-style character hits the pavement in high spirits, only to rub up against some cantankerous New Yorkers intent on souring his vibe. What’s not to like?!

Brother Earth brings together the formidable talents of multi-instrumentalist Todd Tobias (Circus Devils) and vocalist Steve Five (The Library is on Fire). On their debut album for Hidden Shoal Positive Haywires, which features singles ‘Out Like A Lion’ and ‘City of Gold’, their shadowy, kaleidoscopic music vacillates between brooding textural pieces and exuberant rock-and-roll at the drop of a hat, chasing the ghosts of pop music past into a hall of cracked mirrors. The album’s wonderfully elastic aesthetics shift from dark and broken to sunny and playful in a matter of songs, while maintaining their own warped and beautiful logic.

Check out the video below, stream the single at SoundCloud and buy the album at Bandcamp (CD + Digital + Limited Edition Cassette).
