The Perfect Scottish Man, With A Guitar
Twin Atlantic - Make A Beast Of Myself from Phil Smithies on Vimeo.
As a single girl, I get asked all the time who my ideal boyfriend would be. (Um, really, by like one person, ever. And I think it was when my BFF and I were having drunk confession time.) I've thought long and hard about this. I've spent years hemming and hawing between Robert Pattinson, Joshua Jackson, and every hot tattooed guy I ever saw on the subway in New York. Then I saw this video and now every dude in the world is a total piece of shit compared to Sam McTrusty. His band, Twin Atlantic, is one of my favorite bands from the past couple years (you may have noticed them snag the #3 spot on my Top Albums of 2011 List.) They're a Scottish rock band that sounds like Manchester Orchestra meets City and Colour meets Gaslight Anthem meets someone with a really awesome accent. Really it's none of those bands at all. Even though they really are just a straight up rock band, they somehow have their own lane that no one else quite fits in. I think it's the Scottish singer thing. When I sing along to them, I sing like I have an accent, too. I feel really cool alone in my car, pretending I'm a super sexy Scottish man. (This is why I'm single.)
Anyway, hottness aside, Twin Atlantic rocks. This video is sort of the softer side of TA. I just wanted to share some musical & sexy-boy goodness with the internet today. I dare you to not fall in love with Sam McTrusty.
