Folk Poppers Side Saddle unveil video for "Something I Said" + play three NYC boroughs in a month

Folk Poppers Side Saddle unveil video for "Something I Said" + play three NYC boroughs in a month

What a beautiful world it would be if each one of us learned to argue without taking issue at diverging opinions! As you can see in the first few seconds of the video we are premiering here for single "Something I Said," the six guys in NYC folk pop band Side Saddle are not very good at that, but at least there's enough of them to allow them to resolve their disagreements through a football match in the park. That's a better way to settle disputes rather than screaming at (and secretly hating) each other, although admittedly not a very time-efficient one, in particular for bands, often cauldrons of conflicting egos. But this two year old project doesn't seem to have that problem, since it's coming out from a very productive year that saw the release of debut EP "The Postcard" and, more recently, full length album "The Astorian" (a reference to the NYC borough the band hails from). The latter features "Something I Said" and also their most popular single, the Simon and Garfunkel-esque "Don't Wait For Him." Speaking of the legendary folk duo from the 60s, it's obviously a strong influence on Side Saddle's music, but the band wears it with impressive flair, churning out catchy and compelling folk pop gems, enriched by tasteful and absolutely spot on vocal harmonies.

Astorians can see them at Old Prague on January 31, Manhattanites at Bowery Electric on 02.02, and Brooklynityes at Muchmore on 02.20. Staten Islanders and The Bronx... ites (?) get no love for now (but they rarely do anyway...).
