Exclusive: The Party in Parmalee’s ‘Hotdamalama’ Video? It’s Real
The boys of Parmalee get a little out of control on the set of the music video for their new single, "Hotdamalama." Surely that's not real whiskey they're sipping, is it?
This behind-the-scenes clip premiering exclusively on Taste of Country reveals that yes, it is.
The party bop "Hotdamalama" is one of six included on Parmalee's new Party Pack EP, available on April 20. It's also built to be the song of the summer, with no-nonsense guitar riffs crashing into wild country-rock lyrics. It's all reminiscent of the song that put the North Carolina band on the map, "Musta Had a Good Time," from 2012.
Nope, this ain't thinkin' man's country, and the music video reflects it. Ripped denim, bikini tops, tiki bars, a familiar boat captain ... yeah, this looks like the kind of beach party you want to be at between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Singer Matt Thomas helped write all six songs on the Party Pack EP. "Day Drinkin'," "Mimosas" and "Last Night" are three more that are included. Find him and his brother Scott in this BTS clip of a music video that's coming soon. Barry Knox and Josh McSwain are also featured prominently.
As for the ship captain? That's none other than well-known songwriter Craig Wiseman, a co-writer on "Hotdamalama."
