It's presumptuous of me to assume a song is classified as "Pop" when I hear a mix or influence of multiple music styles. Like most things I enjoy, I wish I knew the correct terminology so to be able to discuss what I think... and not sound stupid!
I have become obsessed with this tune!
You don't need lyrics to feel it's dark, kinda Country/Folk/Punk, but I'm pretty sure it's the Swing/Jazz/Blues is what's transporting me back to memories I still have of fabulous vacations in New Orleans! ...but this group is from Portland, Oregon?
...so, WHAT genre is this?
Look/listen to the "wicked fiddler" in this video (especially midway to nearer the end) - it's what makes me so obsessed with this song! He's got the swing - vibrato, double stops, slides, improve and who knows what all, then POPS that harmonic on the E string!
...I wanna be like that when I grow up!
Warning - couple explicit words at the end of the lyrics.
