Start It Up Again from Daniel Cojanu on Vimeo
A new video from the Brother’s Rye, featuring the single “Start It Up Again,” is an ode to front man Benjamin Lee Paterson’s hometown of Woods Hole, as well as the seasonal tides all Cape Codders are familiar with.
As anyone who’s set foot there knows, Woods Hole has a Jekyll and Hyde quality: the good times of summer, filled with steel drums and shellfish, and a harsh, windy winter. As the band jams out around a bonfire, flasks passing and sparks flying, “Start Up Again” conveys the seasonal rite of passage from winter into spring, despair into hope. Even if you’ve never been to Woods Hole, you’ll find yourself humming along, feeling just a tad it nostalgic for those raw March days.
