Spokane band, Horse Thieves, release music video: Dakota Wind II | Arts & Culture
A member of the local band, The Horse Thieves, is on a horse. Over the phone, Marshall McLean explains how he rode a nearly wild horse just to film their new music video for the song “Dakota Wind II”.
The scene is set on a farm just outside of Reardan. The band mates adventure through a wheat field for a retelling of Moby Dick in the form of a Western.
“It’s a loose connection as far as the song goes,” McLean said. “The connection of the lyrics are ambiguous and don’t follow along too closely.”
As for the horse, McLean says he fell off the horse about ten times:
“Adam [Miller] raises horses part time and he owns that stallion that I’m riding in the field. It hadn’t been ridden in a year and it’s kind of wild. It kept bucking me off,” McLean said.
The Horse Thieves are performing in Spokane again on June 16th after touring through Missoula, Helena and Sandpoint. They'll be performing at the Knitting Factoring and then continuing to Seattle and Nampa.
