SUSIE SCURRY – “THE ELVIS HOUR”
A Spill Exclusive Video Premiere
Melbourne singer-songwriter Susie Scurry, formerly known as ‘The Grand Magoozi’, has released the new title track single + video to her forthcoming EP The Elvis Hour.
More than a love letter to The King, this is an autumnal lament about the Sunday night blues, and the anxiety of working a job you don’t love. Telling the story of an hourly program on the dusty end of the AM dial (the now defunct Magic 1278) which paid tribute to Elvis every Sunday night, showcasing his prolific career and breadth of styles from Vegas to Hawaii, cowboy to crooner. The Elvis Hour is a homage to the iconic legend and the lonely existence of ‘The King of Rock n’ Roll’. Susie’s voice croons over an old-school, toe-tapping soft score of lap steel sighs, bass, percussion and strings, with lyrics reminding us of all that Elvis achieved in his short life – “there wasn’t much he didn’t do for a man that died at 42″.
Accompanying the song is a lovingly put together intimate video montage of Elvis – dressed to impress in a striking navy blue jumpsuit – and his entourage meeting and greeting lucky and adoring fans before his concert.
