Dead Winter Carpenters shared an official “Quarantine Collab” video for their song “Time Off The Bottle.” The track appeared on the band’s recently released EP, Sinners ‘n’ Freaks, and its accompanying visual premieres exclusively below.

“I can’t remember if the lick or the title came first, but it evolved from there into a lyrical lament on consumption and the different shapes it can take,” Dunn told JamBase about the track. “I thought it would be compelling to hear that philosophy from a female perspective, and I feel that Jenni [Charles] really nailed the performance and conveyed the emotion within the song. It was really cool to have the video assembled in such a way as to bring some of our friends and family together to do something fun and collaborative during such a fraught period of human existence. Kudos to our buddy Brad Wagner for putting it all together.”

Dead Winter Carpenters consists of Dunn, fiddler Jenni Charles, guitarist Nick Swimley, drummer Brendan Smith and bassist Jeremy Plog. Sinners ‘n’ Freaks was recorded with co-producer Matt Baxter at his Ranch Recording facility in Auburn, California. Guest performer Jackie Greene played piano and Hammond B3 organ

“I was honored that Jesse asked me to sing this extremely well-written number,” added Charles “I feel emotionally attached to every bit of this song for a myriad of reasons. For me, this is a song about taking a leap of faith into the next chapter of life and deciding when to do that. How much is too much? How far is too far? The proverbial ‘bottle’ can be anything that isn’t serving your higher self. Naturally, we had to call on Brad Wagner to put together a video for us with full artistic license and we were pleasantly surprised.”
