VIDEO :: The Phenomenal Handclap Band debut new single “The Unknown Faces at Father James Park”December 8, 2011
On their latest single “The Unknown Faces at Father James Park”, the Phenomenal Handclap Band continue to showcase their blend of psych, soul, and disco.
According to PHB:
“As a teenager, Father James Park was the local park where my friends and I were able to go and not be bothered by our parents or other authority figures. We used to meet there as often as possible to hang out and clear our minds, and since there were no adults around, it also became the place we’d go to expand our minds. The Unknown Faces at Father James Park is about the inherent peer pressure, confusion, and tumultuous times that teenagers have.
For the video, we thought the best way to reflect this subject matter would be to edit together found footage along the lines of the various PSA’s we were subjected to in high school. They were so humorless and terrifying at the time, but looking back, it was a lot of unnecessary warning against what turned out to be healthy experimentation.”
Keep an eye out for the band’s forthcoming LP Form & Control, which is due out February 14 on Tummy Touch.
