This upbeat, catchy song from Brendan Benson will stick around in your brain for a while. The video, directed by Wartella, features excellent animation. Benson says: “This was a very different video making experience. I had to pantomime the whole thing with notes from Wartella (who lives in another city), about the different scenes. I had to hold an imaginary umbrella and arrange an imaginary vase with flowers. It was all very mysterious and I had no idea if I was doing a good job or anything until it came back after being animated. Turns out I’m a pretty good mime!” Taken from ‘Dear Life’, Benson’s first new album in seven years, this is one to enjoy.
