Thorcraft Cobra celebrates the Year of the Snake with the release of their new Party Clock video!
HIP Video Promo presents their newest single and video clip “Party Clock” from the debut full-length album Count It In.
The “Party Clock” video was directed by acclaimed TV director Ross Novie (The Office, Arrested Development, Secret Girlfriend) and includes starring performances by Sara Fletcher (Secret Girlfriend, Family Guy) and a guy who looks alarming like Martin Landau. The video was production designed by acclaimed fine artist Shana Mabari, and was shot on location at the historic Boardner’s in Hollywood. No animals, other than Billy, were harmed in the filming of this music video.
The debut Thorcraft Cobra full-length, Count It In, was released on January 8, 2013 on the Plaza Bowl Records & Tapes imprint, with distribution thru RedEye in the US and Outside in Canada.
In the first week at radio, the record hit #7 on the FMQB Submodern Albums Chart, and was #6 most added at CMJ Top 200, and #3 most added at CMJ AAA!
The record has been on the specialty and college charts each week since release, and has garnered spins on stations such as KROQ, KCSN, WXRT, WMBR, KFAI, KDHX and many others.
The band’s release show at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles was a featured pick of the night in the LA Weekly, and on Buzzbands.LA.
The Count It In album features guest performances from some of the band’s friends including Russell Mael (Sparks), Steve McDonald (Redd Kross), Mahsa Zargaran (Big Black Delta, Omniflux, Sabrosa Purr) and Will Love (Sabrosa Purr).
With Thorcraft Cobra, Canadian cold meets California cool. Billy Zimmer and Tammy Glover first met in previous projects while they were on the same label–the now defunct, but influential, Permanent Press Recordings. *
The two musicians always hatched plans to record together and, after a prolonged gestation (while Tammy toured the world and recorded with brothers Ron and Russell Mael, aka Sparks), Thorcraft Cobra finally came into being.
