Americana singer-songwriter Amanda Shires is flying high as her solo career begins to take shape, but in her new video for “Look Like a Bird,” the fiddling Texas sweetheart still longs for some far-seeing perspective.
Shires told The Wall Street Journal she’d “do anything for art,” including climbing trees and throwing duck decoys.
It’s an abstract video — partially animated — that fits well with Shires’ textured lyrics. And with her distinctive vocals and a slightly unsettled fiddle lead, she seems ready to transform into a bird and fly off at any moment.
From her fourth solo album, Down Fell the Doves, enjoy Amanda Shires’ ornithological video for “Look Like a Bird.”
