Horse Feathers
share new video for “Without Applause”
Appreciation out now on Kill Rock Stars
UK tour dates announced


Portland-based band Horse Feathers have shared a video to their single “Without Applause” via Clash Music .  Taken from their latest album, Appreciation, out now on Kill Rock Stars.  The video was directed by Aubree Bernier-Clarke.  Justin Ringle says, “When Aubree approached me with the idea of a clown being the protagonist of the video I naturally had a few reservations. But with the this record having a new sound I thought well at least the first impression of the video will be “this is different”. A lighter mood is a good change of pace for us.”

On Appreciation, their sixth full-length and the fifth on independent label Kill Rock Stars, singer, Justin Ringle’s warm tenor and lyrics speak of work, love, and other struggles. On this album less of the song dynamics are achieved with strings, and more with an exciting new rhythm section steeped in Northern Soul. Longtime violinist Nathan Crockett and keyboardist Dustin Dybvig provide continuity, but much of Appreciation feels like the best of Ringle’s previous musical ideas just took a giant step into a larger arena.
