Our friends at Clothesline Revival introduced us to music from their friends at Hoppin’ Haole Brothers while we were working on ideas for our next letterpress printing project. The combination of mystery, lipstick and ukelele in this short music video for the song Wound by The Hoppin’ Haole Brothers, featuring founder and lead vocalist Scott Warnasch, suits us well.
Wound is a mysteriously alluring song which does not appear on the band’s debut album How-lee. It was shot in Ocean Grove, New Jersey at a small Bed-and-Breakfast Inn called the Manchester (which sadly burned down in March 2010). The video was directed by photographer, filmmaker and artist Gerald Slota. Scott’s wife, Linda is also featured in the short film. Kurt Westphal and Bob Charde can be heard backing up Scott musically.
Hoppin’ Haole’s album How-lee is available at cdBaby.
