Check out the latest video from folk singer/songwriter Jeremy Stricklin's project Oh, Jeremiah, "Beautiful Monster", a Josh Ritter-esque take on Americana.
 

The video for Oh, Jeremiah’s “Beautiful Monster”, a cut off of its latest EP, Our Very Own Kingdom, is indicative of the sonic the band has created for itself. Shot in a cozy, bookshelf-adorned room, the group—fronted by Jeremy Strickin, who wields a nifty parlor guitar—spins a yarn about the dangers of falling for someone that you know is dangerous. The band’s style on “Beautiful Monster” brings to mind Josh Ritter at his most intimate: warm, inviting, and altogether pleasing to the ear.
  
Stricklin says to PopMatters about the tune, “‘Beautiful Monster’ is a song about living with your bad decisions as if they are just a big, haunted house. It’s about chasing after the wrong kind of person, knowing the whole time it only leads you somewhere you never wanted to go, a dangerous impulse we all have at some point.”



Our Very Own Kingdom EP is out now.
