"Behold The Hurricane", or at least the aftermath. That's the theme at hand with The Horrible Crowes' new, cinematic video for the song of the same name. The story here is a sad one. A man...down on his luck, freaking out, and slowly losing everything. As singer Brian Fallon explains, the band "didn't feel right about having two guys wailing away on guitars to tell it".
If Fallon's name, voice, and general musical aesthetic sound familiar, it's probably because you've heard his contributions at the helm of The Gaslight Anthem. The Horrible Crowes is Fallon's side project with longtime friend Ian Perkinsis. Like the tune they chose to set their video to, the band's debut Elsie is a bit moodier and slightly down tempo from Fallon's work with TGA. Of course, you'll also find that Fallon has a hard time abandoning his own anthemic penchant for decidedly American, Jersey pride kind of choruses, and we definitely like it that way.
