Winnipeg’s The Crooked Brothers aren’t exactly known for their cheery tunes. In fact, despite the toe tapping, make you move undercurrent of their porch country-blues melodies, they’ve never written a happy tune in seven years of trying.
That is, until now.
Due to kick off on a series of Canadian dates in support of their new Postcard EP (delivered as a literal postcard with download links to enjoy and mail along to a friend — incredibly innovative), The Crooked Brothers have released a video for their first upbeat tune, “There Ain’t No One”. In keeping with the nostalgic vibe of the release, the band has captured a series of memories shot in Super 8. It’s retro without feeling cliche, capturing that warmth of remembering the journey a relationship can take and realizing that no, there’s really no one else you’d rather call a loved one. The song itself is a playful, punchy melody that you can’t help but enjoy — a ray of sunshine for the dark winter days still ahead.
