[video] Port O'Brien - "I Woke Up Today"

Port O’Brien first caught my ear last year on the strength of their Nowhere To Run EP, which featured an infectious little sing-along called “I Woke Up Today”. The song was spruced up a bit for the band’s latest full length, All We Could Do Was Sing, which saw release last month. The new version features a driving, insistent beat that elevates the communal nature of the group vocals. The video above is the band’s first official one, and captures both the nautical themes that are so important to the band, as well as the child-like glee that comes from shouting those lyrics for 3 and a half minutes. Sounds to me like they’re having fun.
