As a long time supporter of the band, The Wild Honey Pie premiered FIERCE CREATURES‘ newest single “Catacomb Party” last night. Described as a “party at the graveyard,” the breathy lead vocals supported by harmonized howls are fitting for a catacomb. While the song has a driving and upbeat tempo with colorful hits of guitar and percussion, the video captures some more of the darker and more psychedelic elements on the band’s sound, featuring the band performing at an underground catacomb party alongside the band’s mascot (the literal fierce creature), and a slew of vintage-wearing, face-painted ballroom dancers. This brilliant music video, directed by Jeffrey Prosser, also reminds us of a day of the dead/prom version of of Beirut’s ‘Elephant Gun’.
Fierce Creatures’ “Catacomb Party,” full-length album comes out September 11th. You can pre-order at http://www.papergardenrecords.com/shop/fierce-creatures.
