Hollis Brown Launches Tour, New Video


Waiting for that man again…

By Blurt Staff

Last year Alive/Naturalsound rockers Hollis Brown served up a Record Store Day gem in the form of Hollis Brown Gets Loaded, a recreation of the Velvet Underground’s classic Loaded album. Velvets song “Sweet Jane” has long been a mainstay of the band’s setlists, too. Now they’ve got a new Manuel S. Umo-directed video for one of the key tracks off their recently-released 3 Shots album. “Sweet Tooth” is one of the catchiest numbers on the record and they describe it as “depicting the darker, seedier parts of New York City and the thrills of the night – the wondering, searching – getting by and needing that high.”

Now if THAT doesn’t sound like something straight out of the Lou Reed playbook, check out some of the lyrics:

“Out on a corner, Money in my Hand – I place my order to a good friend and now I’m waiting just to get by”.

Check out the video below, along with a list of the band’s fall tour dates – they head out onto the road next week with Counting Crows and will be spotted at numerous festivals and outdoor venues well into the fall.
