I’ve been waiting for a long time to write about The Seedy Seeds on this here TV blog. As it is, I can only justify writing about music when there’s a video accompanying the song — otherwise I’d be straying a little bit from the point of the site (which, for the record, is to write about cute boys, dote over Tina Fey and periodically declare that Meredith Grey is a ridiculous trollop).
But now the wait is over — the band has finally made a video for their song “Drive Me To The Center,” off their most recent album “Count the Days.” It’s a galloping, synth-charged rock song that is a bit darker and tenser than most of their tunes. Most of The Seedy Seeds’ tracks have enough playful instrumentation and spirited delivery that it easily overshadows any sort of wistfulness in the lyrics.
One thing I like about The Seedy Seeds is that they have made the rare and risky step of embracing their cuteness (the boy/girl vocals, the kazoos, the banjos, the unrelenting optimism and affinity vegan baked goods) without seeming forced or affected. They just love making pop music in the Buckeye State.
But enough of me blabbing. Here’s their surreal clip for “Drive Me To the Center.”
