Since the release of Jolly’s latest work “The Audio Guide To happiness (Part 2)”, the band has managed to film and edit its second music video for the song “Firewell”, and almost simultaneously complete a highly successful 16 date tour across Europe with label-mates Riverside.
In this new video, the band can be seen playing their instruments in a performance style piece, dressed down in black suits, having fun doing what they do best….playing great music. (And even a little Karate 🙂
Just before the release of the album and tour with Riverside, Hurricane Sandy swept through the northeast United States destroyed the bands rehearsal space, studio and drummer Louis Abramson’s home. Left with no instruments and no funding to replace everything on their own, the band turned to their fan base as a last ditch effort to continue, and in turn received an overwhelming amount of support from their fans. Allowing them to complete the album, replace their instruments and go on tour. Their resilience is a testament to why this young band stands out from the pack.
The band commented: “Filmed in the post-hurricane wreckage in our studio, just like the Dust Nation Bleak video. We got a crash course in making the most with what you’ve got. Luckily we all fit into one suit. Enjoy! JOLLY loves you.”
