Thanks Light Drops Video For “I Get High (Off You)”





Thanks Light Drops Video For “I Get High (Off You)”

Funny fact – as of writing, Google lists Austin indie rockers Thanks Light as “classical.” And y’know what? They're not wrong.

 

That's not to say Thanks Light, who recently dropped a new video for their single “I Get High (Off You),” are in danger of adding contrabass or harpsichord to their current four-piece featuring lap steel and Moog. Rather, Thanks Light could have played “I Get High (Off You)” at a roadhouse or coffeeshop in 1970, 1990 or 2010 and not a single patron would have batted an eye.

 

It’s textbook Austin indie rock, a step behind Spoon, a step ahead of Fastball. It’s bouncy, good-natured indie stoner rock, with steel tremolo and rolling roadhouse piano adding interest to comfily predictable drums and strums.

 

The video is equally on-message, featuring a hirsute gentleman singing his way through a diner, a faceful of jellybeans and sundry whimsical Americana. “I Get High (Off You)” is Thanks Light giving the listener exactly what's on the box, and there's not a damn thing wrong with that.
