Video: "Lonely Fortunes"
Highlight: "We've wanted to shoot a video in our namesake Ha Ha Tonka State Park for a while now," mandolinist Brett Anderson tells Spinner. "It was our director Brook Linder's idea to shoot the video with super 8mm film. The shots, colors and everything that he captured turned out really great. We are super happy with the way it turned out."
"'Lonely Fortunes' in a way is sort of our austerity anthem," adds vocalist/guitarist Brian Roberts. "We were largely inspired to write the song because, you know, a lot of people have it rough right now since the recession hit and we see that driving around the country. Sometimes you can work hard and do your best and it doesn't pay off monetarily but you are rewarded in other ways. We tried our best to capture that in this song.".
