Canadian garage-rockers Japandroids released your summer party soundtrack, Celebration Rock, back in May. Ecstatic single “The House That Heaven Built” sounds like it was made for barbecues and beer commercials, and its video—Japandroids’ first music video, directed by Jim Larson for Pitchfork.tv—has that feel as well, especially with that build-up as they take the stage. Unlike most beer commercials, though, the crowd’s excitement feels real.
The black-and-white clip follows the band through some scenes from life on the road, involving crowd surfing, whiskey and weaponry. Crack open a cold one, watch and rock out while it still feels like summer.
