SIGHTS + SOUNDS
Water Seed — “Sweaty Boy”: The Atlanta expat band known as Water Seed recently dropped the video for its newest single “Sweaty Boy.” The funked-up tune and visual is dripping with the high energy and tongue-in-cheek vibes the (now-New Orleans-based) group has built a rep creating. Take a look, and listen for yourself below. More info: www.waterseedmusic.com.
