Vamoose is a crew duo (Oldboy and Everiman) from NYC, often times backed by both a live band and a DJ. Don’t know much about them, but I’m digging the song. The video, on the other hand, could use some work. Though there is something endearing about the low budgetness of it and how the crew doesn’t seem concerned at all with being viewed as cool.
As it is, this toes the line between slinky summer jam (that organ and horns are reminiscent of Curtis Mayfield) and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it became a quasi-club anthem.
This cracked me up from their website: “People are going to drive their cars, smoke their cigarettes, drink their alcohol, drive their petroleum powered SUVs, but what if we were just a bit more conscious about it all? People are going to be people, but what if there was a small alternative to these activities? What if you could do these things and help yourself AND the world at the same time?
Armed with hybrid cars, clear rolling papers, and bottles of smart water, we will prove on our journey from NYC to Los Angeles that alternative options, can be better for us all.”
Admirable, I’d offer. Lyrics are definitely NSFW or grandma.
