Since dropping their second album “Heavy Days” last summer, Katy Guillen & the Girls have kept an active schedule traveling coast to coast, releasing two music videos and preparing an acoustic album for the fall. And through their fervent live shows, authoritative musicianship and indelible songcraft, the trio has fashioned an identity that transcends the confines of blues and guitar rock.
“Waking Up From You,” the third track from “Heavy Days,” shows the band at its most dynamic. It pulls the listener in with an urgent, tenacious hook that dramatically shifts into intimate, introspective verses and a wistful breakdown, characterized by a booming ’60s Wall of Sound backbeat. The accompanying music video, directed by Jetpack Pictures and shot at Cap Gun Studios in Kansas City, depicts the song’s earnestness and immediacy.
Here’s our premiere of Katy Guillen & the Girls’ new music video, “Waking Up From You.”
