Cranky George has just released their new visual for "Misery Road." The second single off the groups debut album, "Fat Lot of Good." The song and video feature co-founder and actor Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friends Wedding, current CBS series Pure Genius) on vocals. As well as co-founder of both Cranky George and The Pogues, James Fearnley, on accordion.
Cranky George describes Misery Road as "a song with a country flair" and says the song wears its emotions on the sleeve. The lyrics, sung by Dermot Mulroney, center around a love affair gone wrong and a man leaving town to find answers. And the music video continues to explore this theme with a narrative following a man struggling with his love life and jumping in his car to escape. All of this action –including the band performing in a junkyard– is set against a toe tapping beat, led by a hooky accordion line.
