Call Me Spinster tug at the heartstrings with their new single ‘Mule’.   The video features a young girl and her father on a camping trip.  Beautiful cinematography by director Daniel Andrade captures the natural beauty of a national park in Ecuador.  As singer Amelia Graber Jacobs sings about finding a sense of home, the final frames of the video put the father-daughter relationship in a deeper perspective.

“This song was written while my now-husband and I were living with my parents in St. Paul, MN, filming a movie he’d written. We had turned my parents’ urban garage into a pen for two goats that factored into the movie somehow. It was a cold, snowless, winter, and it was becoming clear that we couldn’t finish the film. We decided to head back down south to Tennessee, get married, and start our own life in warmer waters. ‘Mule’ is about that homecoming.”

‘Mule’ is from their debut album ‘Potholes’ available now via Strolling Bones Records.
