Batwings Catwings – “Energy” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Miles Bowe / January 7, 2014

Last year Batwings Catwings put out a video for their song “September.” It didn’t have too heavy of a plot, but the magic of it was in how perfectly it captured the feel of their sunny, nostalgic rock song by showing a little girl getting ready to go back to school and playing with her cat. This new video for “Energy,” the third single off the same EP, is simply a parade of awesome things arranged to reinforce how awesome the song is. That means you will see Batman and Robin headbang, Jaws eating a pizza, and Miles “Tails” Prower (from Sonic The Hedgehog) jumping around. This video has a dozen Pikachus rocking out along with Tom Hanks in the late-’80s gem, The Burbs. Did I mention Worf from Star Trek TNG shows up? Because he does. That’s how great this video is: It has Worf AND Tom Hanks. Batwings Catwings’ guitarist pretty much made the whole thing on his phone. Watch it below.

The Woah EP is out now via Higher Life.
