Video: Smile Smile -- "Tempo Bledsoe"

Lots of news out of Smile Smile camp this morning. First and foremost, a new video (watch it above), this one for the song "Tempo Bledsoe," which, for all intents and purposes, is the first single off of the band's upcoming album Truth on Tape, the duo's sophomore release on Kirtland Records. The disc is set for a February 16, 2010 release, and, till then, the band plans on releasing a whole spate of new videos for fans to keep tuning into--or so the plan reads, as written over on the band's Web site.

As for the video: It's a pretty impressive single-shot take, complete with backing dancers and all that. Oh, and--get this--there are some pretty killer synth lines in the chorus! As for the intro, though? It's no "On Top of Old Smoky," I guess. But I've been having trouble shaking another ol' classic from my head as it plays...
