But when the Raggedy Ann look-a-like comes to life, she must be taught the ways of her owner, like how to sip coffee correctly and how to behave at a rock concert. It's hard out there for a dummy -- especially one with such rigid arms.
"Like the song itself, this video obviously doesn't take itself too seriously and that's probably the thing we love most about it," singer and multi-instrumentalist Heather Robb tells Spinner. "The opportunity to make something fun and engaging to watch is a gift unto itself, but to get a bunch of our friends involved and make a weekend of it, that's truly something special. We were lucky to have a pair of directors with a very clear vision as well as a whole team of artists behind the scenes who generously shared their talents. If people have half as much fun watching it as we had making it then we've succeeded!"
This video, which was directed and produced by Keith Boynton and Mike Lavoie, isn't the only recent highlight for the Spring Standards. A few weeks ago at SXSW, the band made a famous new fan: Bill Murray.
"The experience of having Bill Murray show up to our SXSW showcase can't really be put into words," Robb says. "He's simply one of the greatest performers ever and we were incredibly humbled by the whole ordeal. To have a man like him leading the charge for 'Just One More Song' after our 1AM set was a moment we will never forget. It was a dream come true, pure and simple."
Yellow//gold, out in May, is the Spring Standards' third fully fan-funded self-release. You can catch the band and their new tunes at Brooklyn's the Knitting Factory this Friday, April 6.
