VALAIRE Premiere ‘Woody Wagon’ Video
Montreal based five-piece, VALAIRE, have premiered the official music video for their new single, Woody Wagon, taken from their new album, Oobopopop, out now via Indica Records (Phantogram, Half Moon Run). This is such a groovy and funky tune guys. I feel so cool listening to this! Hehe. Check it out below!



The new single features the legendary Alan Prater on vocals  (Millie Jackson, The O.J’s, Michael Jackson, The Jacksons, Cameo). The video,  directed by Michaël Lalancette, features local funk legend Alan Prater and a cameo by TV personality Maripier Morin. She receives the band on the (fictional) Culture M show after what seems to have been a wild night.
 Frontman Luis Clavis said,
Woody Wagon is one of the funkiest and uplifting song of the album. Alan Prater is bringing his soul background while we keep it dancy with an uptempo groove and rythmic horns. The goal of the video was to put smiles on faces and I think it works! Can you tell it was shot in the middle of a snowstorm and Jules (drummer and leading role) had the worst flu of his life while dealing with these four giant puppets?
After being known as Misteur Valaire for a decade, the Juno nominated collective felt it was time to simplify things, starting with their name. They dropped the “Misteur” as most of their fans already called them VALAIRE for short. Oobopopop was written in Louisiana where they were surrounded by funk, jazz, and everything that grooves. Every day, they would “go to work” on their own, building on song ideas based around specific tones and tempos. From there, the music took shape collectively. Late night gatherings also fuelled their creativity. The only golden rule was that the music had to feel good. VALAIRE set out to make an album that was upbeat and joyous, hopping from funk and soul to samples and beats. The result is an all-inclusive, sing-along dance party, complete with brass, keyboards, and percussion.
