Cuchulain Kelly touches on the soulful side of the daily grind in latest music video

It's easy to get lost in the day to day hustle, grinding your way through the work day, getting caught up in petty squabbles, forgetting that this city is filled with millions of complex human beings each with their own hopes and aspirations.  It's this more soulful side of working drudgery that Cuchulain Kelly touches on in the music video for the song "Torn In Two".  Using a company meeting about "quarterly revenues" as its backdrop, the video shows us Kelly expressing his inner frustrations to his co-workers, only to be shown the door.  Of course we can all relate to the struggles of the Kelly in the video, doing the daily grind while suppressing the desire to grapple with and openly express our internal conflicts. 

All in all a charming song gleaned from the trials and tribulations of DC's buttoned down culture.

Artist to check out: Odetta Hartman plays Rough Trade on 10.14

It is rare to stumble upon emerging artists who have the ability to convey intensity and emotion with only their voices and a few instruments - NYC/DC chanteuse Odetta Hartman possesses this skill. Inspired by old-timey country and anything rootsy, Odetta alternatively injects doses of tension, mystery and - always - oozes of character in anything she performs. With her latest original release (the 222 EP) dating back to 2015, we are owed some new material. In the meantime, you can see her live at Rough Trade on 10.14.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best NYCrootsy songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
