LEXINGTON, Ky. — Trippin Roots go walking down the river looking for some fun in their music video for “Stubborn Lungs,” which the band revealed in a Jan. 27 post to their Facebook page. Watch the Coleman Saunders produced video below.
In a Jan. 14 interview on Wick’s Picks, guitarist and songwriter Evan Curran said that he recorded a handful of different versions of “Stubborn Lungs” at home prior to landing with the twangy, soft rock vibe that appears on the band’s album “Waiting for the Fall.”
“It’s been a funk tune as well as a bit on the country side of things… I was experimenting with how I wanted it to sound in the end,” said Curran. “I think we nailed it on the album.”
Curran added, “It’s ironic with the song being called ‘Stubborn Lungs.’ The song is more or less about me being my stubborn self.”
Catch Trippin Roots live on Feb. 2 at Henry Clay’s Public House in downtown Lexington, My Old Kentucky Foam in Georgetown on Feb. 8 and at the Elkhorn Tavern in Lexington’s Distillery District on Feb. 9. For more information visit trippinrootsband.com.
