Even though they’re from Winnipeg, Canada, the Bros. Landreth have the sound of the American South coursing through their speaker wires.
“I Am the Fool,” a standout from their upcoming debut album Let It Lie, is a snake-bitten electric blues full of dirty, swampy attitude.
A new video for the track (originally written by Wally Landreth, father to two of the Bros.) brings the story of lust-despite-better-judgment to life.
When a regular Joe sees a dangerously good-looking brunette in the middle of nowhere, he can’t help but pull over. But when she jumps in without a second thought, it seems like maybe he’s the one being taken for a ride.
As we follow their day on the road we get introduced to each of the band members, too – Joey Landreth, lead singer and restaurant patron; Ariel Posen, guitarist and pool shark; Alex Campbell, keyboards and bartender; Dave Landreth, bassist and motel manager; and Ryan Voth, drummer and balloon enthusiast.
After a steamy night in the motel while guitar solos wail, the sun rises and we see our dangerous brunette behind the wheel of her new man’s truck … alone.
When he wakes up, he’ll be thinking “I Am the Fool” for sure.
Check out the hard-driving video for the Bros. Landreth’s “I Am the Fool.” Let It Lie comes out Jan. 27.
