This spring Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, a.k.a. The Okee Dokee Brothers, will release their latest full-length studio recording Saddle Up. In anticipation of the album’s release, the duo has unveiled the video for the album’s lead single ‘Jackalope.’
The ‘Jackalope’ video follows Mailander and Lansing as they hunt for the elusive, legendary half rabbit/half antelope hybrid in the mountains of Oregon. The song features a musical foundation that is very much akin to the sound made so popular by country music legend Johnny Cash. As the “brothers” note in their field journal of their search for the jackalope, “We’ve been on the lookout for a real-life North American jackalope. We’ve searched high and low. They’re tricky to see ‘cause they’re quicker than lightnin’. They’re impossible to hear ‘cause their feet are as soft as fresh moss. And they’re hard to catch ‘cause they can escape any trap. Some people don’t believe they exist, but if you ask us, those people are probably just jackalopes in disguise.” While Mailander and Lansing eventually come up empty-handed (not to ruin things too much) audiences will get to see the jackalope for themselves as it eludes the men, even getting to see it add its own “musical chops” to the song along the way. The video is streaming online now via The Okee Dokee Brothers’ official YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPLtMrGchfA.
