With their debut single “Smoke” lighting a fire at radio, country-rock outfit A Thousand Horses have released a video for the woozy ballad. And it takes a page right out of Mötley Crüe’s “Girls, Girls, Girls,” with a stripper working it in a way you don’t often see in country videos. (Watch the burlesque show above.)

It’s not all T&A, however. The Stones-y sounding band, along with its three female backup singers, performs in an alley outside the club and has a few cold ones while playing pool inside. The big reveal? The dancer’s name is “Smoke.” Hey now.

The track is the first single off A Thousand Horses’ upcoming album Southernality, produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson) and due June 9th on Republic Nashville, under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella.

“These songs are written about being from the south. It’s a southern personality thing,” says guitarist Bill Satcher. “Looking at the whole album, that’s the common thread between all the songs. It’s the attitude. It’s why we sound the way we sound and play what we play and do what we do.”

The video was shot in a dive bar in East Nashville, across the street from a theater that was converted into a studio where artists like Johnny Paycheck once recorded.

A Thousand Horses — one of Rolling Stone Country‘s Artists You Need to Know — will join Darius Rucker on tour in May.
