Tom McBride – A Brief Head Spin video

DC music video of the day! Tom McBride put out a successful album fronting his band The Whig Party before deciding to go stripped down and solo for his latest record, A Brief Head Spin. The singer-songwriter teamed up with Sean Greenhalgh from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah to produce the collection of Americana-influenced songs. This Saturday night McBride plays a very high profile show at DC9, opening for The Honey Brothers, featuring Adrian Grenier from Entourage on drums (sellout warning!). The debut video from McBride’s solo album, for the title track, is simple and somewhat amateur, but the long shots looking out a car window fit well with the mellow sound of the song, and must speak closely to the life of a touring musician.
