For The Wood Brothers’ ‘Little Bit Sweet’, Texan artist, Gary Dorsey, has combined live performances, animation and old film footage cleverly to create an absorbing video. It’s a perfect fit for a song that features engaging harmony vocals, a lovely finger-picking guitar melody and smart lyrics that explore love in its various forms. The song is from one of the best albums of the year so far, ‘Kingdom in My Mind’.
Oliver Wood says: “Lyrically the song speaks to the yins and yangs of love—every kind of love. How the value and preciousness of love is matched by its fragility and fleetingness. The images in the lyrics are from personal experiences, and the connected feelings should feel pretty universal. The timing of this video being released is certainly bittersweet for us, but we hope this can be a reminder of the connections we all share. Maybe in some small way the song can be a reprieve from the stress and fear everyone is feeling out there right now.” That’s a good message in these strange times.
