Sincerely, Iris Releases Quarantined Video For “Revenge Blues”
The Richmond music scene has been adapting remarkably well to social distancing guidelines and quarantines over the last several weeks, with virtual happy hours and extended streaming sets giving fans a direct view of the pure talent housed within our city. It’s not easy to put out new music or videos these days though, but that’s not stopping some artists, like Sincerely, Iris who just released a tri-level video for their song “Revenge Blues.”
In the video, frontman Todd Murray is joined by bassist Chip Hale and drummer Jon Chadwick in the comfort of each musicians’ individual home to bring to life a fiery track. Torrid and funky, “Revenge Blues” is an inflamed blues song built around a swampy riff that lets its displeasure seethe and boil. It’s a song bands like Cream or The Allman Brothers would have loved to play around with night after night on tour decades ago, and today, it’s a great reminder that blues-rock still has a lot of fire and spirit left.
“Revenge Blues” is the second music video from Sincerely, Iris this year, after the animated video for “Take Your Soul” which came out in late February, long before the current situation necessitated remote videos like “Revenge Blues.” Both songs come from I’m Not The Same, Murray’s 2019 album, which features Murray’s trademark license plate guitar going from blues to folk over twelve flourishing tracks.
I’m Not The Same is available to stream and purchase over at the Bandcamp page for Sincerely, Iris, but in the meantime, you can check out the remote video for “Revenge Blues” below.
