California based bluegrass band Nickel Creek are back with a new album, entitled The Dotted Line, after a seven year hiatus. Above you can watch the music video for the first single off the album, "Hayloft", a song originally by Canadian indie-rockers Mother Mother.
The video is creative and colorful, animated in a paper cut out style. The story follows a young couple trying to sneak a private moment in the barn while the protagonist's overprotective father sleeps. However, as the chorus states, dad has a gun. Naturally, the lovers make a bit too much noise, wake the father up, and a chase ensues. Musically, Nickel Creek add a bit of bluegrass flair to the original song and the chorus has a strong pop hook.
