Pennan Brae Is Giving Up ‘Weed & Whisky Women’ With New Release

Vancouver rocker Pennan Brae returns with another retro-cool lyric video, for his new single, ‘Weed & Whisky Women’. Continuously taking inspiration from the 70s and 80s for his sound, ‘Weed & Whisky Women’ doesn’t disappoint, as it kicks off Pennan’s 9th album, ‘Cinema’, which came out on June 25th, 2021. The lead single of the 11-track album was mixed by producer Kirk Kelsey (The Smashing Pumpkins).

The production on ‘Weed & Whisky Women’ is turned up a bit and shakes things up; it has a fresh and psychedelic sound, with female vocals that weave in and out, adding a new richness and depth to the fast-paced song. Nonetheless, it’s still a classic Pennan Brae song, with dream-like guitar riffs and strong beating bongo drums. The lyrics play out like a reminder to no one else but Pennan: a reminder as to why he’s giving up weed & whisky women.

Like most Pennan videos, the clip for ‘Weed & Whisky Women’ transports the viewer back to the psychedelic world of the 70s. Director Rob Fitzgerald pulls inspiration from the psychedelic, tiki-hut world of the ‘70s, opening with three silhouettes of dancing girls doing a hula. As the lyrics start to appear on the screen, the background changes into a never-ending lava lamp. Colours and images swirl together in a large clump. Yet another truly sensational clip from Brae and Fitzgerald, which leaves us in strong anticipation for what they will come up with next.
