When it comes to dating, it’s often been remarked and repeated that men and women seem to live in different worlds. That well-worn adage is displayed beautifully in the new video from the Alabama southern soul outfit St. Paul & The Broken Bones for “Call Me.” As the video opens, vocalist Paul Janeway is sitting with a girl in a red dress on a couch split between two lives. On his side his bandmates play brass instruments and cards wearing suits and ties against a backdrop of wood and muted blue while Janeway stands and goes through some of his trademark gospel shimmies. She, for her part, dances gracefully and playfully in front of a world of pink, with furniture torn from the 70s. From the set pieces to the close-in shots to the dance moves on both ends of the un-dialed telephone, the video really captures the lightheartedness and energy of the music. Watch it above.
“Call Me” is the third track on St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ debut full-length, Half The City, out now on Single Lock.
