Video of the Day is Hands by Barns Courtney

Barns CourtneyGuess what I got my hands on… Ha okay that was bad, but this video is not. We got new music from Barns Courtney! He is releasing a 4-track debut EP via Virgin EMI, set to release May 27. “Hands” is the title track, and along with this release he is giving us a video. A hard-hitting, guitar strumming Courtney is shown rocking out in this fast paced video of searching for the girl. Barns Courtney has a way of connecting the listener and making me want to sing along from the first moment I hear his songs with incredible hooks and straight lit beats. I don’t know how he does it, but I am sure glad he does. Growing up both in Seattle and the UK, he brings a balance in him that is evident in his playing. This EP will also include one of my favorites “Glitter and Gold” that I featured a while back here at 50thirdand3rd. Barns is currently on tour internationally playing many festivals throughout the summer.

EP is available for pre-order now on iTunes which gives an instant download of the single, and the single is also available to stream on Spotify as well as other social outlets. Check out his website for more info and follow Barns Courtney on Twitter, Instagram and soundcloud. A big thanks to Toast Press for letting me get my hands on this new EP! Okay I am done.
