Former Woods member Kevin Morby is gearing up to release his new full-length Singing Saw in just a few weeks. We’ve already heard a preview of the album and seen him continue his knack for good videos with “I Have Been To The Mountain.” Today he shares another teaser track called “Dorothy.”
The song is a nice, bright piece of bouncy folk rock, with Morby’s smooth monotone delivery cutting through exquisitely layered electric guitar, intricate drum work, quick horn section, bell tings, and banging piano chords. There’s a lot going on, but it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Morby sings “We can go all night” to close the song, and the way he’s jamming on the track it’s easy to believe. It’s just a fun song about having fun with your best gal, good for singing along or dancing whatever you wish.
The clip is simple, featuring Morby sauntering down a dirt road past his band members looking dapper and relaxed in a suit and bolo tie.
