Oh, Jeremiah goes ape shit at a talent show in video for “Tremble” — watch

Folk singer-songwriter couple adopt a quirky Wes Anderson-vibe for new video

    Jeremiah Stricklin of Oh, Jeremiah really loves his green sports jacket, and he makes no secret of it. It’s featured in practically every promo image of the duo, Stricklin always mugging coolly beside his bandmate and wife, Erin Stricklin. It’s even on the cover of the singer-songwriters’ upcoming album, The Other End of Passing Time, out August 19th. But in the video for the LP’s latest single, “Tremble”, Stricklin and his beloved coat have been separated, and it’s tearing him up inside.

    In the video, Stricklin is mourning the loss of his green companion while he and his wife attend the annual Loblolly Talent Show. He does his best to allow himself to be distracted by the cellists, painters, and dancers who take the stage, but the specter of his missing clothing hangs over him. That is until a magician takes the stage and it’s no longer over him, but right in front of him. This wand-waving hack has jacked Stricklin’s jacket, and he’s not about to stand for it. What ensues is an all-out brawl of flag-twirling fisticuffs, Rubix cube ramming, and violin bow bashing.

    Although “Tremble” may be one of the more downbeat love songs on the record, Oh, Jeremiah weren’t afraid of being a little lighthearted with the clip. Director Greyson A. Welch employed a Wes Anderson style of filming, and the Stricklins made sure the video was “really silly and heartfelt.” “The worst part of the internet is how much people portray themselves as someone they’re not,” Jeremiah explained to Consequence of Sound of the video’s concept. “No one posts the bad stuff they go through or the weird parts of themselves that make them human. This video shows us all getting beaten up, looking really silly, and chasing the ugliest piece of clothing on the planet.”
