Following the highly successful launch of her new album This Way Or Some Other, Katie Brianna and Stanley Records have released the video clip for the new single ‘Running Disaster’ which is released digitally tomorrow (May 7th).
It’s a song that perfectly combines Brianna’s effortless way with a sublime melody and the way she complements it with guitar chords that rise and fall with a mid-tempo, pop-rock tinged classicism of the type that Ron Sexsmith excels at. According to Katie, “I’m a sucker for that perfect pop song. Get in and get out in 3 minutes or less and everyone leaves happy. I think it was more of a subconscious thing, a result of the kind of music I listen to.” In terms of what the song addresses, she explains “like a moth to the flame or Winnie-the-Pooh to honey, maybe some people are bad for you, but you don’t stay away. You know all the worst parts of someone but still love them because of the best parts.”
Producer Adam Young assembled a great group of players that included members of the Cruel Sea, the Clouds, Front End Loader, Spurs for Jesus and more to provide the perfect setting for this and the rest of the songs on the new album.
Katie Brianna might be seen by the public as a melancholic Australian Americana songwriter but those who know her, or have seen her live, are aware that she possesses a wicked and irreverent sense of humour, something that director Jeremy Dylan has captured in the video clip for the song. There’s always room for more fun and humour in country music!
You can catch Katie Brianna playing live this Sunday (May 9th) at El Sol Cronulla with Not Good With Horses and specials guests.
