The Ross Sea Party - Thunder (video)
When I moved to LA last year and started delving into its fabulous music scene, I instantly fell in love with The Ross Sea Party after seeing the band play a compelling set at The Satellite. Vocalist Brady Erickson’s crooning voice paired with jangling guitar riffs and percussion stole my heart, and I set out to obtain the folk-rockers’ debut EP, Plains of Id immediately after their performance came to an end. Since then, I have seen the quintet a number of times and was able to witness the debuts of new tracks that (I assume) will comprise the band’s forthcoming freshman LP. One of those tracks was “Thunder,” a striking, two-minute siege complete with rattling drums, playful guitars, and delightful “whoa-oh-ohs.” This came to be one of my favorite songs to hear live and almost literally jumped for joy when I saw that The Ross Sea Party had not only recorded the song, but filmed a video for it, too! I hope you all love this as much as I do. Enjoy!
