Americana duo Hymn for Her spread seeds of positivity with their video for "Scoop".

Hymn for Her (Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing) continues to support its 2018 album Pop-N-Downers with a plethora of touring and a brand-new, self-directed/edited video for the track "Scoop" culled from said album. With an inimitable punk spirit and a healthy dose of heart, Tight and Waxing demonstrate through this song (and clip) why they're becoming one of the most beloved power duos in the Americana scene today.

Speaking about the song, Tight says, "With everything going on in the world, here's something to brighten your day…and 'let go' for a few minutes. It's our way of spreading seeds of positivity amidst the darkness. We're trying to focus on that ourselves. We have to show our kids that there will always be beauty and goodness, even in the darkest times."
