Side Saddle premieres video for 'Legs for Days' + plays The Deli's CMJ Roots Stage on 10.14

Astoria rock quintet Side Saddle's music video (playing below) for "Legs for Days" (off its July-released EP 'Young Professional') unravels piercing drama in country sun. To cascading guitars and marching drums, the Lauren Tracy-directed clip intriguingly juxtaposes a tryst and a funeral, close-ups of the smiling protagonist and his mistress intercut with those of his true lover staring out from black garb as she and his friends say their final goodbyes. It isn't until the music-less final scene when the gravitas of the story becomes really deep as the man, awoken from this nightmare, shares a glance with his partner, the hidden infidelity now heartbreakingly revealed. With a story credited to Side Saddle frontman Ian McGuinness, the crisply-filmed piece is not just a compelling visual accompaniment to the track but a searing portrait of ruptured romance. Side Saddle has several shows coming up, including a slot at The Deli's CMJ Roots Stage at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on 10.14. - Zach Weg
