In terms of favored pastimes, “Chasin’ a Rainbow” sounds pretty much right up the alley of Railroad Earth. The pioneering progressive bluegrass band out of New Jersey has been indulging their trippy blend of traditional bluegrass and Colorado-style hippie rock for 13 years and seven albums, including January’s most recent Last of the Outlaws, which featured “Chasin’ a Rainbow” as a feel-good, chromatically evocative track.

Now, Railroad Earth is premiering the song’s accompanying video, which starts out in a pretty dark place, the depths of a sooty coal mine, before its ragtag band of child workers are shown a better future and motivated to escape into the light.
