You should feel like you’re experiencing different characters or moments in life of an entire community. Each song is telling a bit of the story of each person who comes to the local cafe. It’s almost as if I’m the barista at the counter, and I know everyone in the community and their stories. I try to give it a local feel." Eric Biddines also dropped the visuals for the track "Peeuurrnn." The video, which was shot in the Rockies, was directed by Ryan Snyder. Listen to Eric Biddines' new project The Local Cafe via Soundcloud below and scroll down to watch the visuals for "Peeuurrnn" via YouTube.
