June 29, 2016 — Los Angeles, California — With her soulful voice and edgy style Angie Bruyere of Angie and the Deserters charmed reviewers with the band’s latest single “Country Radio.” The Deserters consist of Kyle Stevens, Danny Hulsizer and Chris Lawrence. In support of their recent track, the americana/alt- country/desert rock group releases the official music video for “Country Radio” on July 29, 2016.
In the single, Angie discusses a love affair between a female country fan and her idol. The fan has only heard the country singer on the radio however, the song leaves room for the listeners’ interpretation. There may be a bit more truth to the story than Bruyere would like us to know, perhaps we may know his music very well and maybe there was a meeting indeed. “Country Radio” is layered with gritty guitar riffs, foot stomping drums, a heavy bassline, and stirring violin strings. But it is Bruyere’s rasp and rawness that shines through this upbeat and edgy Americana single.
Angie really gets the chance to showcase her outlaw roots in the song and in the music video. Directed by Mike Bruce (Paul McCartney, Noel Gallagher, The Dandy Warhols, & Black Mountain) the music video was filmed in Joshua Tree, California. The video begins with Angie in disguise as she rides her own customized Harley through the beautiful desert backroads. From black and white, the video fades to color as Angie enters a rest stop. She attracts another biker and leads him to the band playing out in the desert oasis.
“Country Radio” was produced by Jeff Huskins (Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Clint Black, Shania Twain); along with the rest of the songs from the band’s upcoming EP, Blood Like Wine which will be out July 15th. Already Angie and the Deserters have received notable reviews from the EP’s debut single. “Angie Bruyere has chosen her collaborators wisely, but her vocals and lyrical talents are the undisputed star of the show” says Band Blurb. Indie Music Reviews touted “‘Country Radio’ places Bruyere exactly where she wants to be, a renegade musical force living life on the margins, and filling every line with passion.”
