A.V. Club fans might know Grand Rapids band Stepdad for its theme song to Axe Cop, the popular web comic. The power pop group’s also had tracks featured on shows AVC-friendly shows like Weeds, Gossip Girl, and The Mindy Project. Now the group’s releasing a new EP, Strange Tonight, March 4, and The A.V. Club has the premiere of the first video. The clip for “Got The Bite” is a bit of a trip, with close up shots of girls eating strawberries and burning money. According to the songwriter Ryan McCarthy, “director Titanic Sinclair pitched [the group] the concept as Eyes Wide Shut on the beach,” and immediately (and understandably) the band was sold.
Strange Tonight is available to pre-order via iTunes now.
