Aussie singer-songwriter Fraser A. Gorman makes a deceptively American style of alternative country/folk. He even admits to being slightly out of sorts on his previous single “Broken Hands,” singing, “I got no soul/’Cause country music sounds to me like rock ‘n’ roll.” Gorman’s latest offering is a video for “Shiny Gun” off his forthcoming album Slow Gum. Directed by Sunny Leunig, the clip is a fine piece of throwback work that Ron Burgundy would be proud of. His friend and label head Courtney Barnett assists as the sports correspondent on a fun ’70s-style news broadcast turned jam session. If only local news was this entertaining. Check it out below.
Slow Gum is out 6/29 via Barnett’s Milk! imprint in conjunction with Marathon Artists and House Anxiety.
