Video: Gram Rabbit, ‘Final Clap Fever’


Have we mentioned that it is our long-held opinion that Gram Rabbit is one of the most criminally overlooked bands ever to give us fever dreams? Oh, I guess we have, but not for a while. The Joshua Tree crazies (and we say that in the most adoring way possible) released their fifth full-length this summer; “Welcome to the Country” detoured from their spacey desert electro-pop toward an equally spacey (and mighty twangy) country sound – the kind of stuff you’d hear if a Spindrift after-party was held in a barn that doubled as an alien hideout. “Final Clap Fever” is not from that. It’s a one-off single that sounds like it could have been a highlight on 2010’s “Miracles & Metaphors.” This black-and-white video was made by Giuseppe Asaro, and one scene was featured in Italian Vogue. Earlier this summer, Gram Rabbit founders Jesika von Rabbit and Todd Rutherford found their song “Desperate Heart” in a Fruit of the Loom commercial too. Their unofficial fan club, The Royal Order of the Rabbits, should be proud, inside and out.
