Alex Bleeker And The Freaks Premiere Kicked-Back “Sealong Hair” Video

“We recorded this tune as a palate cleanser.”

September 14, 2015

Alex Bleeker and his folk-rock outfit Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, whose third LP Country Agenda is coming October 16, have unleashed three minutes and ten seconds of perfect zen unto the world via their new "Sealong Hair" video. A sun dazed (and potentially jealousy inducing) montage of beachside scenes captured by director Laura Lynn Petrick, it taps into the song's kicked-back and jam-like vibe.

"Sealong Hair" is a standout on the album because, as Bleeker told The FADER, "it was the only song on the record that didn't have a specific arrangement when we went in to the studio." He continued: "I had this cool progression in mind and a demo version that was very minimal. We recorded this tune as a palate cleanser, it's the only song on the album without a full drum kit on it."

So finish or put a pause on whatever you are doing, and enjoy a moment of peace with the video above.
