The Lonely Heartstring Band, ‘The Tide’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
The Lonely Heartstring Band's music video for "The Tide" will make you want to hit the coast or pick up a fiddle -- or both. The band is premiering the clip exclusively on The Boot.
"The Tide" comes from the Lonely Heartstring Band's Deep Waters album, which is set for release on June 3. The song's accompanying music video intertwines beautiful coastal scenes of the ocean with shots of the ultra-talented band. It's a simple clip, but keeping things basic allows the tune's well-crafted lyrics and hooky melody and the group's expert instrumentation to steal the show.
"So I'm running homeward / Drifting upward / Will you meet me with the tide?" sings guitarist and lead vocalist George Clements, backed with perfect harmonies that soar richly above the full sound of the band.
In addition to Clements, the Lonely Heartstring Band is comprised of Charles Clements (bass, vocals), Gabe Hirshfeld (banjo), Patrick M'Gonigle (fiddle, vocals) and Matt Witler (mandolin). The quintet formed in 2012, after four of its five members met while attending Boston's Berklee College of Music. In the four short years since, the band has made a huge splash in the bluegrass scene: Last year, they won the International Bluegrass Music Association's Momentum Award.
