Wild Cub share “Thunder Clatter” video directed by Drew Bourdet

Directed by Drew Bourdet and shot in the band’s hometown of Nashville, watch the amazing new video for Wild Cub’s “Thunder Clatter” — featuring cheerleaders, snogging, nosebleeds, all that good stuff.

“It’s a challenge to make a video that can serve as both a tasteful introduction to the band and a distillation of a lot of the themes on youth, Drew really struck a delicate balance, showing some of the intimate and smaller moments that we hint at throughout the record, but never hitting you over the head. He lays out a long slate of moments, all with a palpable undercurrent and intangible vibration.” — Keegan DeWitt.

Then head over to Rolling Stone to check out some amazing behind-the-scenes photos from the video shoot, courtesy of Allister Ann.
