Shane Parish – “Randy Dandy O” Music Video

If you’ve been digging Shane Parish’s previous singles from his upcoming record, Liverpool, then you need to watch the video for his latest, “Randy Dandy O.” Check it out below:

This track, much like all of the music from Liverpool, is an instrumental guitar reimagining of a classic sea shanty. This particular cut was composed as a celebratory song for when sailors finally made landfall and could drink and relax for a while before having to go back to sea again (hence why Parish is performing in front of a boat in a parking lot, instead of say, inside of a boat on the water).

There’s a bright and joyous quality to Parish’s fingerpicking here, as the melody bounces with a cheerful ease. The song’s rippling waves of slightly reverberated fuzz immediately calms any dread that the listener may have, replacing it with a breezy sense of relief. Drink all ye grog, boys.
