VIDEO PREMIERE: Sallie Ford Creates Colorful Retro Palette On “Get Out”

Portland, OR based Sallie Ford released her second solo LP Soul Sick on February 10th, which is comprised of doo-wop harmonies, slippery British invasion keyboards, and crunchy, fuzzed-out guitars that back her distinctive howl and surround her at once intimate and confrontational musings on love, depression, and fear. According to Sallie, “This is a ‘confessional’ album.  It’s about struggling with my issues – some that I’ve overcome and some that I still carry around. I felt confused, down about life and unsure of myself,” says Ford on her forthcoming full-length release. “On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place.  All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal.”

Ford has already earned steady accolades for Soul Sick which showcases her skills as a versatile songwriter that effortlessly conquers genres from decades past including garage rock, grunge, and folk. Where Courtney Barnett recently captured our attention with colorful lyrics, 90’s guitar and hummable harmonies; Ford takes it up a step and combines soulful organ, frantic backbeats, surf guitars and psychedelic flourishes.

Glide Magazine is thrilled to premiere the video for “Get Out” (below) which captures Ford in vintage essence rocking out in a colorful collage of plastic cups, musician puppets and of course her agile vocals and guitar: think Booker T and the M.G.’s meets Angel Olsen.

“I asked my friends Matthew Morgan and Arturo Martinini to make a music video involving puppets! They already had puppets known as “The Mitten People” who they hired to be my back up band in the video, “says Ford. “Also involved in the making was amazing artist Catherine Lazar Odell (who made props and background images) and cinematographer Kevin Freeny. “What came out of the collaboration was a mashup inspired by Sesame Street’s “Teeny Little Super Guy” and cheesy 60’s psychedelic music videos.”
