I was thirty seconds into my first listen to The Uh Huhs’ new single, “Wrong Young Lady,” when I had a thought: this is rock and roll. The new tune gives vintage beach rock vibes with a modern garage flare. The instrumentals are raw and the vocals are electric. To quote the song, it’s “serious shit, man.”
The video, produced by Nashville’s Bad Guys Media, & directed by Chris Jones, puts a surprising twist on falling in love with the wrong girl. Seasoned actress Scout Taylor-Compton and Courtney Bass, making her on screen debut, tell the story of a tangled friendship, while The Uh Huhs perform over a movie theater showing of Royal Wedding (1951).
Ride the Pet Sounds-esque “ooh ooh oohs” into the weekend, and expect more new music from The Uh Huhs in the coming months.
