Video: 'Giving Up Redheads'
Highlight: "We got a burlesque dancer and actress Lindsay Naas aka Vicky Sin and paired her with a Long Island-based Elvis impersonator by the name of RELVIS aka Randy Mancini and cast them as the femme fatale and lovelorn loser respectively," Leland Sundries tells Spinner. "Director Jim Turner and the cast did an amazing job. We walked around Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the shoot and got some really funny looks from people. Someone came out of a hair salon mid-haircut to see Elvis! We also met a dog named Elvis."
"As for the song itself, there was a redhead who was once not kind and we took that and ran with it past the point of reason. I was obsessed with Sun Records when I wrote this song, and it’s not far from Memphis territory, with a little added grit. It also takes the idea that you can be wicked and funny with a just grain of truth from the great outlaw country songs of Merle Haggard and David Allen Coe. We ride a Memphis train beat as far as it can take us. 'Giving Up Redheads' is about as tongue-in-cheek as they come. We actually really like redheads."
