Perhaps best known for being the front-man to Seattle-based indie-pop band Dolour, which also featured Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, Shane Tutmarc has undergone a musical evolution since 2010, at which time, upon moving to Nashville, he set to work on creating his own sound.
Such a sound blends garage-folk, blues, country, gospel and pop — yes, he is a man of hugely varied taste — and culminates in the production of tracks which showcase his development as an artist and pay strong tribute to his many Americana musician predecessors.
His latest single, “So Hard To Make An Easy Getaway” is one such track and undoubtedly a highlight of the many he has released so far. With a ridiculously catchy chorus which just begs to be sung along to at full volume and a great hook, although summer may be fading from view at a seemingly alarming rate, this song might just make you feel like it’s being drawn out that little bit more, and PopWrapped is delighted to premiere the lyric video to the track which you can watch below.
Asked about the song, Tutmarc explains:
“‘So Hard to Make An Easy Getaway’ has been very kind to me over the years. Although it never got a proper release until last years single-a-month series, it was featured in the Lifetime TV movie Girl Fight starring Anne Heche back in 2011. The great thing about the single-a-month series, was that it was a bit of a cleaning house for me. I had so many songs that never fit on records, but that I really loved, so this is one that I’m glad is available to the public now. And pairing it with clips of Steve Martin and John Candy in Trains, Planes and Automobiles felt like a no-brainer.”
