Music Video: The Ross Sea Party - Thunder
The Ross Sea Party is a typically unusual Los Angeles family. Five friends who wanted to transcend the disconnected and nonsensical nature of life in the city to create something consequential, the band embarked with hollow-body guitars, well-tuned drums, and a glockenspiel. Like its namesake (a little known yet heroic wing of Ernest Shackleton's famed 1914 Trans-Antarctic Expedition), The Ross Sea Party can be characterized by their easy navigation across an ever-changing atmosphere, as expeditionaries of boundless inspiration. Following the release of "Plains of Id" (2010), The Ross Sea Party's debut EP, the band has steadily become a familiar name in LA's underground music scene and beyond.
"Thunder" unleashes the bands debut music video. Self-produced and under the creative visual direction of Brady Erickson, the video was conceived to echo the spacious and rhythmic nature of the song, playing out as a staccato collage of the band in a stark environment.
