Andrew Bryant – “Robert Downey Jr.’s Scars” (video) (premiere)

No one wrings profound moments of clarity from ephemeral thoughts quite like Mississippi songwriter Andrew Bryant.

No one wrings profound moments of clarity from ephemeral thoughts quite like Mississippi songwriter Andrew Bryant. Singing, “Iron Man was on the TV / I was pouring myself another beer / Thinking about all the pain that’s in my heart / Thinking about Robert Downey Jr.’s scars,” the suburban mise-en-scène Bryant paints on “Robert Downey Jr.’s Scars” devolves into an adrenaline rush of rock and determination.

Three years removed from the last Water Liars album, Bryant will follow on his 2015 solo release, This Is the Life, with Ain’t It Like the Cosmos on 27 October via Last Chance Records.
