On the Rise: Watch a New Oak House Video

Songwriter Gresham Cash cycled through a couple other names for his new alt-rock project—Sehrmann, Cedar Waxwing—before settling on the pleasant, placid Oak House. The band, composed of Cash as well as members Slade Adams, Wes Gregory and Wes Kent, is set to release its debut album, Plastique Cash, next Tuesday, Sept 16.

In advance of the record’s release, the group has posted a fancy-looking music video for one of the record’s tracks, the reverb-laden, Jeff Buckley-esque “Little Queen.”

Check out the Ethan Payne-directed clip, which features themes of bondage and beauty and oh no bigs it’s just another Wednesday in Athens G-A, below:

Oak House plays the 40 Watt Club on Friday, Sept. 26.
