Cherry Glazer, the indie trio, has released a new music video for the song “Told You I’d Be With The Guys”, a single that will celebrate the signing with the label Secretly Canadian for a full length offering. The trios last full-length offering was with the 2014 Haxel Princess album, which was released through Burger Records.
Clementine Creevy, the lead singer of the band, set up the song to record her moment of notice when she knew that she needed to establish solidarity with other women and stop being a “lone wolf” as she has spoken in her lyrics. She has stated that this is necessary “in order to combat the sexism that is ingrained in our culture and consequentially within herself”, she also adds, “Women work from behind their oppression. In order to make good art you need to be emotionally free and sadly, not a lot of women are able to do that. That always puts a fire under my ass.” In order to complete this theme, the artist sings lyrics like “Where are my ladies?/I guess that was my fault.”, while the director Rick Blakeway shot scenes of the band performing mainly in the kitchen and car. As the song progresses, guys in red polos and khakis multiply and crowd around Clementine’s personal space.
Throughout the video, the lead singer adds emphasis to the lyric “I was a lone wolf”, while singing calmly on the other parts of the chorus and verses of the song. The beats of the guitar and piano consist of the same tunes, while the drums vary in velocity. The song can be listened to below.
The band has recently finished performing at the Made In America Festival, and are set to perform at other festivals in the upcoming month like Desert Daze, Pitchfork Avant Garde and Mirrors Festival.
