Songwriter, turned Sony Monument Records recording artist, Teddy Robb is proving why we chose him as one of our 2019 Artists to Watch. After finding success with his debut single “Lead Me On,” Robb further showed off his talent with his honest song “Really Shouldn’t Drink Around You”. The singer-songwriter premiered the official music video for the track everywhere Wednesday, April 25th.
Written by heavy hitting songwriters, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Trevor Rosen (Old Dominion), the song suggests that drinking around an ex-lover isn’t usually the best idea. The track is as relatable as it gets, featuring clever word play and catchy lyrics. Robb’s vocals give off a fresh and new sound, while feeling believable and charming all at the same time.
When Robb first released the song, he shared on his Twitter, “What I love about country music is the stories the songs tell & how they can take you to a certain place & time…” This is exactly what his song and music video does.
The music video showcases the singer-songwriter narrating with a guitar in hand, singing the cleverly strung together lyrics, “You say that we can be friends / But, hey let’s be honest / There ain’t really no such thing as gin and platonic.” The picturesque background and Robb’s sultry smile adds a little mystery to the visuals.
As the video progresses, the camera flashes to Robb and a love interest drinking, playing pool, cuddling around a fire, and eventually going home together, depicting things that happen when you drink around an old flame.
Check out the full-length video below, and look out for the ending.
Robb is slated to release more music this year with a brand new track dropping tomorrow, Friday, Arpil 26th. Make sure to check back here where we’ll keep you updated on the release.
