AJ Haynes, the lead singer of this Shreveport Louisana band has a wonderful voice and a lot of charisma. Their new video over you is the best song I’ve heard from this band, however, I’m not sure why the whole thing is filmed in a bathroom. That’s kind of weird, especially since it opens with AJ taking a piss and reaching for the toilet paper while she’s singing. Artistic choices can be confounding sometimes. Nevertheless, the music speaks for itself.Haynes was trained as a gospel singer and she’s in good company there, think Aretha Franklin for starters.
In an interview with Grandstand Music Haynes explained the reason she chose the bathroom as the setting for this vid.
“‘Over You’ was written fresh after an acrimonious break up. Lewis Pesacov and I came up with a beat and a bass line and then I basically free-styled over the track. There was a point at which I realized-while making the song-that I truly was over the split. That I was better. I had to deal with how I was complicit in the emotional manipulations and blame game tug-of-war. I had to look at myself.
