Exclusive Video Premiere: Smallest Horse “How To Be A Human” (2020)

Smallest Horse

Brissie folk-punsters Smallest Horse have just dropped their latest tune, “How To Be A Human”, and we are thrilled today to be premiering the video for the track. This band has the folk-punk genre down pat, combining quirky story-telling with upbeat melodies and just the right amount of attitude. Humour and acute observations are the hallmarks of their music.

Sam Pudding from the band explained that the story behind the song isn’t their own, however “it was told to me by a friend. At the time I was adjusting to becoming a father. My whole world was changing. I had no time to go out and see people, or do anything for myself. I took our friend’s strange and somewhat depressing story and used it to write this song.”

And whilst it might not be their own story, it does have a salient message “How To Be A Human is to remind me that the grass isn’t always greener, and that everything I needed and wanted was already right in front of me.”

The track was recorded by Cameron Smith at Incremental Records. Smallest Horse have 2 EP’s to their name, The Goodonya EP (2018) and The New Farm Sharks EP (2019).

To celebrate the release of “How To Be A Human”, Smallest Horse are playing a gig at the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on Friday night, 4th December 2020. Details are below.

Enjoy our first look at the video. The band suffered for their art somewhat in this one, enduring a significant rainstorm, and they had to haul a piano outside, so it’s well and truly worth watching.
