Seattle rock band Thunderpussy have shared a music video for a new song that deserves to be heard. Listen to "Torpedo Love" above.
The all-female outfit, not to be confused with Alabama Thunderpussy from Virginia, have garnered praise from popular musicians such as Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, and it's easy to see why. The band's previous singles, "Velvet Noose" and "Speed Queen," rock with catchy guitar riffs. For "Torpedo Love," the group tone it down a bit with gentle strumming and sweeping orchestration. The tune recalls the delicacy of Led Zeppelin's "The Rain Song," but Thunderpussy incorporate their unique rock style to make it feel original.
The video was recorded live at an abandoned nuclear power plant in Washington and directed by Andrew Franks. Band member Molly Sides spoke about Sylvia Massy, their producer, and the chosen location in an interview with NPR:
When working with Magic Mama Massy, enthused wild ideas literally explode everywhere. So, it wasn't strange when Sylvia threw out the idea of recording in a silo. As we crept up to the monstrous structures, it seemed as though they'd been waiting for us, and the concrete curtains calling to us. With both nature and nuclear walls hovering, a beautifully eerie collaboration ensued.
You can purchase the single on Amazon.
