Beans On Toast shares his own happiness with the delightful video for his new song 'New Orleans Honeymoon', taken from his 2014 album 'The Grand Scheme of Things' which is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings.
The video is literally a home movie created by Beans On Toast, and stars his wife Lizzy Bee on their actual New Orleans Honeymoon. She is seen wearing what looks like a wedding dress and enjoying what the city has to offer including carriage rides, The Spotted Cat Music Club, street buskers and magnificent seafood, and we finally get a glimpse of Beans himself at the end. The lovely thing about the video is that the lyrics melt seamlessly into each clip, almost like a narration, though the song is written prior to the events we see with Beans promising to make Lizzy his wife. The very British accent contrasts beautifully with the American theme, and that anti-folk, almost punk vibe of Beans On Toast remains, alongside a ska-like instrumental featuring a cheery brass section in tribute to the city of jazz music.
The Essex musician wrote the song while on tour in the US and it has become one of his most personal tracks to date. 2015 will see him impress us even more with yet more touring, this time around the UK as well as the US, with loads of new venues. He'll even be reaching South Africa for their Afrikaburn festival.
