Singer/songwriter Sera Cahoone has one of the more unique prospectives as a singer/songwriter – she’s been drumming since she was 11 and has toured with the likes of Band of Horses and Carissa’s Weird; however, with the recent release of her third full-length album, Deer Creek Canyon, Cahoone finally steps into the spotlight as a frontperson.
“Nervous Wreck,” the latest single (and video) off the album has seemingly opposing themes – with an almost friendly, down home sort of voice, Cahoone expresses ambivalence and discomfort as the song has an upbeat, happy melody that seems to convey a world rushing on past her.
The official video features couples discovered by the video’s producer Ryan McMackin. Each of the couples were known to frequent the Little Red Hen, a country bar in Seattle. Interestingly, each of these couples are captured rather naturally – you can see their basic sweetness and decency with at times a rather endearing awkwardness.
