Japandroids have released a video for their anthemic first single from Celebration Rock, “The House That Heaven Built.” As would be expected, the Jim Larson-directed clip captures the band (and their fans) in youthful bliss and exuberance. Basically, it is the perfect compliment to the song.
Shot entirely in black and white and documenting Japandroids’ recent tour, the video recreates the energy that is present in their live show while giving a glimpse at the Jack Daniels-fueled lifestyle that accompanies it. Heads are banged, stages are dived and beers are shotgunned. And, in a fitting conclusion, the closing images of the video display a girl shivering on the pavement proudly declaring her love for the band.
