Check out this brand new video for “Shoe Fits” from Daniel Ellsworth and The Great Lakes. The Nashville indie-pop band’s strident, keyboard-driven tune made Amazon MP3’s Best Songs of 2011 So Far list, and their debut full-length album, Civilized Man, is one of Amazon’s Digital Favorites. The track was recorded by Mark Nevers (Andrew Bird, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Yo La Tengo).
“More or less, it’s a song about ignoring negativity, getting out of your own head, and embracing everything about who you are,” says Ellsworth. “We shot the video in Nashville with the amazing Austin Gros. Filming was hot, sweaty, and right in the middle of Nashville’s 13-year cicada invasion, but the whole thing ended up being fun, funny, and maybe even a little creepy… which we are completely okay with.”
