GOOD OLD WAR
November 19, 2009
Greetings fellow music video lovers! It’s Andy Gesner and the staff from HIP Video Promo, here with an emotionally touching clip, “Maybe Mine,” from the extraordinarily talented, and HIP favorite, Good Old War. We’ve had the good fortune to bring you three videos from this group that marries great musicianship with lyrics that speak to the everyday struggles that most of us go through. The “Maybe Mine” song and clip is no exception, focusing on dynamics of relationships. But to get to the core of the matter, Good Old War uses a quirky metaphor..
The clip stars a clay figurine named Andy, who doesn’t quite fit in with the real world surrounding him, filled as it is with people made of different stuff. He has a flesh-and-blood girlfriend, but it’s not going too well, as you can see throughout the video, whether it be a self induced amputation, or a kiss that ends in a clay smothering. Eventually Andy comes home to find a mess of hangers all over the apartment and no clothes in the closet; she’s gone.
But while it marks the end for this particular relationship, Good Old War hints that it’s only the beginning for a better one. Who better to remind us that no matter what, there is someone out there for everyone? And don’t worry about Andy, everything turns out just fine for him.
While the video itself is entertaining and sweet, you’ll also love the sound of “Maybe Mine,” pulled from Good Old War’s debut, Only Way To Be Alone. Carefully thought-out, vintage harmonies rise and fall on this record. The band sings in a dusky, three-part unison. The band’s eye for intricate detail in their vocal arrangements has won them the praises of music critics—but it’s the no-frills emotional core of their music that captures the hearts of listeners worldwide. In a down-to-earth fashion, they talk about the human experience; joy, pain, love and loss. But while their music does contain dark elements, it leaves listeners with a lingering sense of serenity and hope.
