Band of Horses Set to Run at Roxian (Mon., 2/12/24)

There are weird music videos and very weird music videos, and then there’s the video (above) for “Crutch,” by Band of Horses. Like a herd of wild horses high on loco weed, this one wades madly into a medley of internet-video cliches—cute kitties; mouth and face overlays—betting boldly that it will come out on the “so bad it’s good” side. And maybe it does! The song is pretty good. “Crutch” climbed to number 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Airplay chart in 2022. It’s the lead single from Things Are Great, the sixth studio album by Band of Horses and the group’s most acclaimed album since the Grammy-nominated 2010 release Infinite Arms. Based in Charleston, South Carolina (and sometimes billing themselves drolly as “the 3rd best band in the Carolinas”), the Horses have earned a distinctive place in the indie/alternative scene with their hypnotic, melodic tunes and simple but poetically resonant lyrics. Currently they’re on tour, fronted by founding singer-instrumentalist Ben Bridwell. Pittsburghers can catch Band of Horses at the Roxian Theatre. 8 p.m. 425 Chartiers Ave., McKees Rocks. (M.V.)
