The Phenomenal Handclap Band “Baby” (Video)

Taken from the album “The Phenomenal Handclap Band” out on Gomma. Single with remixes by Blackstrobe, Daniel Haaksman, Clock Opera and Rodion will be released on March 12th. Here’s the video for the original track, directed by Stephen Agnew in New York half a year ago but not finished till now. A 3-minute blood, soul and slasher micro masterpiece.

If you don’t know the complete album yet you should listen…it’s the perfect soundtrack for cold winter nights. And if you haven’t seen them live yet: We are currently organizing an Europe tour in Spring, with the Handclaps playing at Gomma parties in Paris, Berlin, London and other cities around… check them out. And for now: get the video of New Yorks freshest psychadelic funksters.
