Thunder Power releases new video for "Winter Lingering"12 PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 11 April 2013 14:36
With one last wintry blast taking hold of much of the US, it seemed like an appropirate time for Thunder Power to release their new video for their track "Winter Lingering." It's the Omaha-based group's second official video for a song off of their recent album "Volumes," which was released in December 2012 via Slumber Party Records. The video is based around the amazing world of comic artist Chris Ware (author of "Jimmy Corrigan," "Rusty Brown," "Building Stories," et al).
Here's a link to the video (feel free to share!): http://youtu.be/gqjG3X9ESdI
ABOUT THE VIDEO
The video for "Winter Lingering" is set in an Omaha inhabited by the likes of Rusty Brown, Chalky White and Jason Lint -- characters from comic artist Chris Ware's ongoing graphic novel "Rusty Brown."
ABOUT "VOLUMES"
After six years of what seems to be an ever-revolving cast, Thunder Power remains the collective musical outlet of a group of friends residing in Omaha, anchored by constant members Alex Boardman, Will Silvey Simons and Ian Simons.
After putting out four EPs (two solo, two split), they finally released their debut LP "Volumes" this past December on Slumber Party Records. "Volumes," recorded at ARC Studios in Omaha, features 11 tracks that capture the band’s musical approach of attempting to reach peak instrumental lushness, all balanced by the off-putting beauty (and sometimes frailness) of introverted songwriting.
Thunder Power's next show is May 31st at Slowdown in Omaha where the vinyl ediion of "Volumes" will be availble for purchase for the first time.
