‘The world’s best American band, or so their sophomore album describes, White Reaper, have released the video to their lead single Judy French, which stars Alexandra Daddario, known for her work on ‘Baywatch’, ‘San Andreas’ and ‘True Detective’.
The World’s Best American Band was released back in April, and rather playfully proclaims White Reaper as well, exactly what it says on the tin. Now legitimately this is too big and controversial a question to answer, but still, we’re loving Judy French. It’s in-your-face, frisky, and a testament to everything garage punk can be.
While the raucous chords of White Reaper play, Daddario is seen taking on the roles of each band member, replicating their fashion and playing. The song itself is frantic, and gives off the vibes of a wholly ‘American Summer’ – youth, love, and partying.
