A stowaway appears above deck aboard a boat of Dutch men en route to the port of Amsterdam. He is escaping, searching, finding, hiding. The promise of work and adventure will always allure. This is no tale of days past, but the reality for Prairie Cat. A seemingly deserted passenger ship is a back drop that intrigues and weaves images for the album track "On A Lamb". The only tools on hand? A Blackberry Q10, Iphone 6, Samsung S5 and a last second Canon. The shoot was prompted and directed by Steve Bays, and with the help of his Mounties bandmates, the 15 hour ferry ride was the perfect setting to shoot, direct and edit the video. The finale finds Cary on an empty dance floor in front of the ships only passengers, which happen to be all men, and the show band.
Lately, Prairie Cat has been touring as a backing percussionist with Mounties, but the Vancouver pop songwriter known as Cary Pratt found some time while travelling through Europe to assemble a video for his own track, "On a Lamb."
The song is a quirky, extremely catchy cut from last year's Who Knows Where to Begin?, and the accompanying video was captured on a ferry cruise from Newcastle to Amsterdam. It was directed by Mounties member Steve Bays (also of Hot Hot Heat and Fur Trade) and shows Pratt hanging out on the deck while wearing a poncho, checking out the ship's entertainment facilities, and busting a move on a totally empty dancefloor. -- Exclaim!
