Toronto, ON – March 8, 2018 – In celebration of International Women’s Day, Calgary-based country band, Nice Horse, is sharing the video for their aptly titled song, Mansplainin’. Premiering via Canadian Musician, the Lisa Mann-directed video depicts the group’s trials with men, and their tenacity to push for progress. In addition, Nice Horse is premiering a live version of the track alongside Canadian artists, Brooklyn Doran, Iskwe and Witch Prophet at a special International Women’s Day event at Facebook Canada’s Toronto headquarters today. Listen here: Watch the video for Mainsplainin’, and stream/purchase the song here.

Mansplainin’ is from Nice Horse’s debut LP, There Goes The Neighbourhood, and is a fitting feminist anthem, not only for the day or month, for women within the music industry and other diverse communities.

“We are one of the few self-contained, all female country band so we get a lot of comments about that. While working on our new album with producer Jeff Dalziel, we’d often come into the studio with stories about things that had happened to us as women in the industry, from people thinking we needed help choosing drumsticks to men assuming the gear we were buying was for our boyfriends. We used the term 'mansplaining' a lot!” the band comments. “This was something our non-mansplaining producer hadn’t heard a lot of before and he couldn’t believe the stories we’d tell him! He really encouraged us to write a song about it, and set us up with another female who he thought would also have experienced the same thing, Tareya Green. It’s not at all a man-bashing song - we love men! It’s just an experience that most women can relate to, and we had a lot of fun writing it.”

Nice Horse had director, Lisa Mann, at the helm, with the help of a women-strong crew to produce the vibrant visuals. "Our director is the incredible Lisa Mann, one of very few female directors, and she’s been doing it for a long time,” says the band. “Katie first worked with her when she was the lead singer of the industrial rock band, Jakalope. At the time, Katie was also one of the few women in the industrial rock genre. The videos Lisa did during Katie’s time in Jakalope garnered them four MuchMusic Video Award nominations. When it was time to make this video, we all knew Lisa was the perfect director for our vision and we are so happy to have her on this project.”

About Nice Horse:
Nice Horse is what happens when four bold, brilliant and badass women get together to raise a little hell—and play a little music at the same time. Alberta natives Kaley, Katie, Brandi and Krista are out to turn the tables on the country music world and show the guys that they can rock—and party—just as hard. Sure, there are plenty of strong female country artists in Daisy Dukes out there, but try to name another self-contained unit that plays their own instruments and writes songs as potent as Jim, Jack, Johnnie & Jose, the new feminist anthem, Mansplainin’, and the band’s current roof-raising single, Pony Up.

There’s plenty of more proof on Nice Horse’s aptly titled full-length debut album, There Goes The Neighborhood (emphasis on the neigh!), on which the quartet pools its abilities with explosive results. Hot on the heels of the group’s EP, A Little Unstable, Nice Horse once again worked with producer Jeff Dalziel (Washboard Union, Brett Kissel), along with the legendary Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue) on a couple of tracks. The growing buzz surrounding Nice Horse led them to be named a CMT Fresh Face Feature Artist, accompanied by a world premiere of the video for Pony Up.

The genuine bond the ladies share comes across even stronger in the video, which also showcases their high-energy live show. The bottom line? If you’re looking for a good time, then Nice Horse is more than willing to take you along for the ride!
