The Speedbumps, ‘Just Need Your Love’ Video [Exclusive Premiere]
A stunning cathedral is the perfect setting for the Speedbumps' new music video for "Just Need Your Love," which they are premiering exclusively for readers of The Boot.
The performance-based clip shows the Ohio indie folk band in all its glory. The stained glass windows behind them gleam with light, and massive chandeliers shine overhead as lead singer Erik Urycki’s deep, husky and ultra-commanding vocals ring out. There isn't any flashy production, a dramatic storyline or a slew of props -- but this video doesn't need it. It's perfectly simple, letting the wistful lyrics and enchanting vocals speak for themselves.
In "Just Need Your Love" as well as their other songs, the Speedbumps' warm, authentic sound combines with hollow-bodied instruments and earnest lyricism. Urycki leads on vocals and guitar, while Abby Luri takes on vocals, guitar, banjo and keys; Sam Kristoff plays cello (often in place of a guitar riff); Kevin Martinez is on acoustic and electric bass; and Pat Hawkins and Danny Jenkins do drums and percussion. Their unique live shows include banjos, ukuleles, the Wurlitzer, glockenspiels, vibraslaps and mandolins.
The Speedbumps released a new album, Soil to the Seed, on May 5. The band recorded the disc in a remote cabin in the woods of Pennsylvania, where they were totally immersed in the act of making an album. They lived together, wrote down songs and laid down tracks at all hours of the day and night.
Soil to the Seed is available now on iTunes.
