Vandaveer Show Off “The Nature of Our Kind” Video

David Thomas of Pere Ubu once said, “Rock music is mostly about moving big black boxes from one side of town to the other in the back of your car.”  In Vandaveer’s new video for “The Nature of Our Kind,” they manage to make the most out of those treks across town, continuing to play even in between venues.  It’s a hummable, yet safe tune with little substance — hopefully not the case with the other tracks on their upcoming album, Dig Down Deep, out April 26 on Supply & Demand Music.   Check tour dates with Ferraby Lionheart below the video:
