The three-time Singer-Songwriter of the Year of past Boston Music Awards raised his game this past Sunday with the top two BMA trophies dished out at the Revere Hotel, snagging both Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. The latter was for August’s independent LP National Throat, and the former was for a career rebirth after divorcing from the tyrannical grip of major labels and reclaiming his own artistic path.
Last night Dailey took over Brighton Music Hall in Allston with friends and comrades Air Traffic Controller and Bleu, and sometime in the haze between last week and now he dropped a new video for National Throat track “Castle of Pretending.”
If he released this Zak Powers-directed video back in August, he might have nabbed Video of the Year at the BMAs as well (no disrespect to Hallelujah The Hills’ winning clip for “I Stand Corrected,” of course). It’s a pretty visually stunning clip that finds Dailey and a family down in New York, under construction under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Download “Castle of Pretending” here, and head to Spinshop to get your hands on some vinyl.
