The Seattle singer knocks out another great funky musical hit that’s all about Seattle love. Footage was shot largely on the streets of Spokane — over the mountains just yonder — but some scenes feature the old hometown, too. The five-minute video is a raucous expression of the more gritty and colorful urbanism found in our littler sister city. She is a beaut!
