Buffalo NY’s Thundercloud Kid have followed up the single release of “Summer Song With Rain” by sharing the tracks’ artistic visual. Beautifully shot in monochrome, the video offers a meditative counterpoint to the track, which builds from a minimalist start to an anthemic climax.
“Summer Song With Rain” is the sister single to “Well After Quiet Hours” (released earlier in the fall), with both tracks being a companions to the band’s graphic novel The Charmingly Odd and Oddly Charming Tales of the Thundercloud Kid. Thundercloud Kid employ an enveloping artistic vision whereby all songs, videos, artwork and graphic novels are set within the novel’s imagined landscape of Mo(u)rning Lake. You can check out the novel here!
Thundercloud Kid on “Summer Song With Rain”:“Summer Song With Rain” is a sister song to “Well After Quiet Hours” so we wanted the videos to work in harmony. The dancing character in this video is not the same as the dancing character in the ‘Well’ video, and we believe that the choreography speaks to that. Our videographer, Dan Richardson, again found the perfect setting for the song: nowhere. This was meant to mimic Ghost Town, this character’s dark dwelling in our graphic novel, “The Charmingly Odd and Oddly Charming Tales of the Thundercloud Kid” and the ambiance is certainly ghostly.We feel that the simplicity, eeriness, and grace of this video strike a haunting chord.
Fans should keep their eyes peeled in early 2019 Thundercloud Kid for new releases. Any announcements will be made from the band’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
