Chris Wood Shows Off His Fancy Footwork In The Wood Brothers’ “Happiness Jones” Video [Watch]

first_imgThe Wood Brothers released their sixth studio album, One Drop Of Truth, on February 2nd via Honey Jar/Thirty Tigers. Buzz around the trio’s latest effort started growing following the release of the album’s lead single, “River Take The Town”, back in November of 2017. Today, brothers Oliver and Chris Wood and Jano Rix keep their new album’s momentum building with the release of the second single off of One Drop Of Truth, “Happiness Jones”, and the song’s subsequent music video.Premiered on Rolling Stone, “Happiness Jones” features The Wood Brothers’ traditional rollicking, upbeat, and nostalgic Americana sound. However, the song and the music video both rely on contrasts—with the lyrics undermining the song’s happy-go-lucky melody and the black-and-white music video directed by Daniel Long further pushing these binaries. The best moments of the music video for The Wood Brothers’ “Happiness Jones” are found as  Chris Wood shows off his beloved dance skills, which seem particularly exuberant with their juxtaposition against Oliver Wood’s stoic presence.As Chris Wood told Rolling Stone, “Someone suggested I do some ‘interpretive dancing’ for the video, along the lines of the little improvised dance I do for the live show.” He continued, “I enjoy moving to music so we tried to capture that in the video.” You can watch the video below:The Wood Brothers – “Happiness Jones” [Official Video][Video: The Wood Brothers]You can listen to The Wood Brothers’ One Drop of Truth in full below via Spotify:The Wood Brothers – One Drop of Truth – Full Album The Wood Brothers – One Drop Of Truth – Tracklisting1.River Takes the Town2.
