Breathing new life into an old classic, Greg Hoy & The Boys take us 50 years into the past to revisit ZZ Top’s “Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell.” Hoy explains the choice to cover this song came from the events of recent years: “Part of the reason this song spoke to me is the breakup of lots of things. The breakup of systems we trusted, I’ve had people close to me pass away…I’ve advanced that to the idea of accepting loss and that everything isn’t permanent”. Capturing a mournfully soulful feeling, Greg Hoy brings the timeless lyrics into a modern frame. The music video beautifully captures the power and emotion behind the song through the band’s performance. We get to see Greg, painted as a struggling artist living out of his 73′ Airstream, haunted by the thought of his ex-lover. The band truly went above and beyond to honor this iconic song and serves as a perfect introduction to the band’s artistry.
