Kevin Morby Goes Home With His New Video ‘Dorothy’

KEVIN-MORBY

Kevin Morby

 

Where and when did I see Kevin Morby? I don’t remember exactly but I remember liking him and his driven melodies with layered arrangements, he had interesting and original tunes and this is also true for this one featured in this new video ‘Dorothy’.

In the video, he takes us on the road, and although I am not sure of what’s going on with all these people dressed in white, the guitar funeral and the surrealist road tour imagery, I like the victorious tone of the trumpets and keys and Kevin’s throbbing nasal delivery.

And if there’s an obvious allusion at the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is not exactly what you think as Kevin Morby named his guitar after his grandmother. ‘Being a musician, when you find yourself at home and off of tour, all the people, places and things you encountered on tour seem like some wild dream,’ explained Kevin. ‘Dorothy, my guitar, represents the people I’ve encountered and experiences I’ve had over the past 7 years of touring, because she has always been there with me.’ His guitar as his… home? That sounds to be the right thing to do for a musician and this song looks like the logical homage.

But I now remember when and where I saw Kevin Morby, he was opening for Angel Olsen at the El Rey 2 years ago! He gave an impressive and captivating performance, starting quietly then exploding and getting the most of his guitar. I even remember making the comparison to a young Ryan Adams who would have listened to a lot of Dylan and Velvet Underground.

‘Dorothy’ is the latest single off his forthcoming album ‘Singing Saw’, which is out on April 15th on Dead Oceans..,Plus, Kevin Morby is not really going home as he has some new tour dates starting in June, check them out below:
