Cowboy Mouth – “Broken Up” (video) (premiere)

The video for Cowboy Mouth‘s “Broken Up” is partly set in a brewery, which is an accurate distillation (pardon the pun) of the song’s sound. It’s a chunk of cheeky punk rock along the lines of the Dropkick Murphys, simple and memorable I-V-I chord progression and loud, crashing drums. Drummer and lead singer Fred LeBlanc’s nasally vocals properly fit the snarky vibe of the song’s lyrics, a kind of “screw you” to the girl who’s just broken up with the narrator. It’s altogether a cheery ode to the break-up — and, given the wholesome, raucous punk featured herein, the video and lyrics fit perfectly with the music.

“Making a video, brewing beer, and singing about a not–so–broken heart; not a bad way to spend a day in Cowboy Mouth land!” says LeBlanc. “Hopefully you guys will enjoy it as much fun as we had making it – which was a lot of f**king fun!”

Cowboy Mouth’s greatest hits collection The Name of the Band Is… released last Friday, July 15. Stream the video to “Broken Up” below.
