NY duo SIRSY has released a new music video for their single “Thieves” via Purevolume.com. Guitarist Rich Libutti provides vintage effects that sound almost like an organ as it bounces along with the quirky, animated video (created by Philippe Blain). The story line pokes fun at the less than desirable industry folk the band has run into in their careers.
“We have been in this thing called the ‘music industry’ for a while now,” says vocalist Mel Krahmer. “During that time we’ve been able to meet some really wonderful people. We’ve also met some ‘other’ people… and they are the folks who inspired the theme of this song and music video.“
Krahmer fronts the hook-heavy band and not only has a great, soulful voice, but performs while standing up and playing a full size drum kit. Her talent has landed her features with Modern Drummer and endorsements from Paiste Cymbals. SIRSY’s live performance (which can be seen roughly 250 times a year as they tour full-time) radiates joy and has landed them opening spots for acts like Maroon 5, Train, Cheap Trick and more.
“Thieves” comes from the band’s latest EP Sketches & Ghosts available now on iTunes.
