Cicada Rhythm just released a new music video for their tune, “Dirty Hound.” Directed by Dave Kirslis, the video depicts a dog houdini’s liberating escape attempt. The video winds through a pastoral countryside, the forest, and eventually the good dog finds himself behind the wheel of a beat-up old truck, ready to truly hit the road. After a brief run-in with his previous owner, let’s just say the video has a happy ending. The triumphant video matches the free energy of the track, and we’re all the better for watching it. You can check out the video for yourself below, and praise that good boy for bustin’ free of his chains.Cicada Rhythm just finished up dates with Dylan LeBlanc and Rising Appalachia. On April 7th, they performed with JJ Grey at eTown Taping for an NPR program, which will be available for your listening pleasure in a few weeks online and on NPR.
