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.
