Video: The Phenomenal Handclap Band - "Baby"

The Phenomenal Handclap Band have released a new video for their song "Baby," a smooth back in the day sounding groove. The video was directed by Steven Agnew. I feel like I've taken a trip in the Wayback Machine and witnessing a movie trailer for a 70's horror flick. Check it out below.
Band member Sean Marquand said about the filming of the video, "we went upstate to our friend Paddy's house, which was incredible, but the surreal serial killer aspect colored everyone's mood. Even when we weren't filming, there seemed to be someone sneaking up on us in the forest. The video reflects some of the highs and lows of our weekend. There's kinship and celebration there but there's also an underlying paranoia attached to being at such a remote location."

New York, The Phenomenal Handclap Band are doing a free show over at Brooklyn Bowl on February 21. They put on a fun show. What more can you ask for? A fun show, for free at a bowling ally!
