Sweden based Tom Levin has recently released his newest video for "Thunder On."
Taking his infectious brand of Folk infused Indie Rock up a notch, his new video for “Thunder On” is ready to lure your ears and entice your eyes.
“Thunder On" provides a dash of vibrancy that carries throughout the track; setting the tone for gorgeous new video. Levin’s voice is uplifting as it is surrounded by melodic harmonies that chime in. The resonating acoustic guitars pull the song together, creating a whole new life, whilst adding an enchanting sound to the overall record.
Tom Levin proves to be a breath of fresh air, and a thinking man’s songwriter with a distinct and powerful voice to match his songs. His often foot-stomping-folk-rock tendencies are instantly enticing.
Levin says of the video: "”Thunder On” is inspired by the buffalo at my sister and her husband’s farm Little Pitchfork Ranch in Alaska. Ever since I first got in contact with the buffalo, I’ve been very fascinated with the animal and that naturally lead me to Native Americans and their wisdom. I picture the song being a conversation between an older Indian and a younger person coming of age.
I wrote the lyrics to ”Thunder On” together with Aimee Bobruk from Austin, TX. We met for the first time through The House of Songs in conjunction with the Live At Heart music festival in Sweden in 2013.
In the video the shaved side of my face symbolizes civilization and the unshaved side symbolizes nature. It also resembles the look of buffalo hair. The video features footage from trips I’ve made to the following places: Falsterbo and Sodra Dellen in Sweden. The Alps in Switzerland. Mallorca in Spain. Little Pitchfork Ranch, The Matanuska Valley, Hatchers Pass and Homer all in Alaska. Toronto, Kansas City, New York and New Orleans. It also features footage from when a friend of mine crossed the U.S. on a motorcycle passing the Texas Mountain Trail and driving by wild fires in Colorado."
