2013 was a great year for Strange Music-signed crew ¡MAYDAY! Their summer album, Believers, was a huge success; just look at those ratings! To celebrate, they’ve dropped a video for Mortuary Mary, a standout cut off the set. With a name like that, you might be expecting something dark and demented. While the video (directed and animated by Steven Cartoccio) is a little morbid, it is more creative and quirky than anything else. As a few monsters woo a devilish lady, Gianni Ca$h and Plex Luthor set the mood with a gritty, slightly bluesy instrumental. To complement the charismatic flow of group frontman Wrekonize, Anjuli Stars provides some supporting vocals that really set off the record’s urban country vibe. Be sure to check out their last Booth feature, November’s Last One Standing, which also appears on the critically-acclaimed LP.
