Video Clip of The Week: Hooton Tennis Club, “Jasper”

Do you enjoy the Brit Pop? I sure do. I just got this clip for Hooton Tennis Club’s sublime new song, “Jasper” and I cant’ stop playing it, because it reminds me that (98% of the time) the Brits just do music better! You know I’m right. Also, I love that the video looks in places like it should be 3D even though it isn’t. With the ubiquitous chimey guitars we’ve all come to expect and love from the Brit Pop, I also appreciate the bright snare tones and the overall low key humor inherent in this clip. As James Brown once said, “I Feel Good!”

“Japser” (b/w “Standing Knees”) is Hooton Tennis Club’s debut single, out February 24th, 2015 on Heavenly Recordings. Two thumbs way up!
