South African Alternative-Pop band Shortstraw have digitally release their latest single ‘Boo’. Bringing Valentines Day a little early for everyone who listens to and engages with the visuals. ‘Boo’ is a celebration of all the better halves out there, and the music video is engaging and amusing, set in the local gym – the band are working out, getting ready for a date.
‘Boo’ is an atypical love song with a typical Shortstraw twist. Al came up with the opening lines for ‘Boo’ one night in 2015 when he was at home waiting for his girlfriend. They have a tradition of pointing out how badly most extras act in the background while watching movies, as well as obvious plot holes which come with the bad acting. The rest of the song he wrote after they had a stupid fight as a way of apologising to her, describing how their favourite thing to do is just to hang out and be goofy together.
‘Boo” is also the first obvious love song the band has ever done – it has a bit of sass and quirk with a hook to it that is synonymous to their style, and the band decided to align it with their February release.
