Earlier this year, Virginia Beach trio Feral Conservatives released a little gem of an album, Here’s To Almost. To characterize the album would be difficult because you couldn’t pigeon-hole them into any single category. The best way to describe the album – a collection of mandolin-driven, indie-folk songs infused with plenty of splashes of rock and pop. One track, however, stands out from the masses.
On “Twenty-Eight”, Feral Conservatives throw away the mandolin and all the niceties heard on the other 10 tracks and share a blistering post-punk-pop track. “Twenty-Eight” is exhilarating, as the song channels the frenzied energy of Paramore with the lyrical prowess of Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz. The video for the song, though, is even more entertaining and wild, and we’re extremely pleased to premiere it today.
The video is one-part short film and one-part mockumentary, as the video represents the band’s reaction to the numerous, homemade Donald Trump signs showing up in their neighborhood. Like good citizens, they decided to, as they state, perform a little bit of “community service”. While the video may appear to be all fun and games, it’s the representation of three young Americans’ astonishment to the political process and the slow decaying of American values and principles.
This amusing but serious video is below. If you prefer the audio version instead, the SoundCloud link immediately follows. You can also hear Here’s To Almost in its entirety on SoundCloud or pick it up on their Bandcamp page or via Egghunt Records.
Feral Conservatives are Rashie Rosenfarb (vocals/mandolin/guitar), Matt Francis (drums/production), and Dan Avant (bass).
