Jennifer Hanson Releases Animated Music Video For Song “Only Thing I Really Need”
Ahead of the Friday release of her Christmas EP, Under the Tree, Jennifer Hanson has released a wonderfully retro animated music video for the song “Only Thing I Really Need.” The feel of the lyric video is intentionally reminiscent of the classic animated Christmas TV specials she watched as a child.

I saw one of his on YouTube and thought he’d be perfect to do my video. I’m really happy with the way it turned out—I think it matches the tone and feel of all of those classic animated Christmas specials I loved as a child.”

Statement from Tyson Meade and the Chainsaw Kittens:
We are devastated by the loss of our drummer Eric Harmon. He was an essential part of our band – our Starr, our Moon, our Bonham. He’s irreplaceable as a drummer. As a friend, his passing will leave a void in our lives that will never be filled.
As we were preparing for our first show in nearly ten years, Eric fell ill during rehearsals. Before this sad turn of events, we had all become excited about the Kittens being active again. Eric had the same zeal and mayhem that he had always had as a drummer, which was infectious and gloriously infected the rest of the band, this time more than ever. In as much, we started talking about playing more festivals because we knew in our hearts the one we were about to play was just the start of another chapter for the Kittens and we were all immensely excited about this. We had even talked about making a new record, since it’s been nearly 20 years since our last one. Now we don’t know what the future holds and it’s difficult to think about without our brother Eric.
Tyson was set to release his new album – Robbing The Nuclear Family – in a few weeks, but out of respect for Eric (who was in the Kittens for nearly 25 years) he has decided to postpone the release – more information will follow at a later date. Right now. the band wants to mourn their friend and at the same time think about the joy and craziness – Eric knew how to bring the craziness – he brought into their lives.

Carl- Robin aka SQRD says: ‘The fundamental aim of music, and arguably all art, is to evoke emotions. Whether it be by drawing a satirical cartoon to illuminate a social issue, telling a story that examines the human condition or simply enhancing a mood with music. My way of capturing the lo-fi feeling and many layers of falsetto vocals does just this. The ambiguity of my songs is meant to allow the listener greater freedom in superimposing their own story unto the music. Rather than trying to convey a specific message, tracks like “Scars” attempts to capture a certain state of mind at the time of listening to it’.
