New Videohippos Video – “Narwhalz”

If you’re sporting “video” in your band name, chances are you’re gonna drop a couple few o’ those bad boys. Baltimorean Band To Watch Videohippos are known for kinetic live shows ‘n’ bright-ass outfits, so what better way to step out in vid form than with a Centipede title sequence, a pink wizard outfit and yellow sports gear, wavy-gravy bubbles, day-glo animals (fish, melodic birds, monkeys, tigers, some sloth-y thing), and — best of all — Jim Triplett (guitar/vocals/keys) smiling like a kid on Christmas morn? Right, there is no better way. Grab a bowl of Fruit Loops and take a peek at joyous Nintendo-tenderizing, Narwhals-guesting, Meredith Moore-directed “Narwhalz.”

We can’t stop listening to Unbeast The Leash and Videohippos’ hyberbeat hardcore keyboard pop. If you still haven’t had a chance to check out the Wham City duo, grab this track…

… and re-read their BTW for another cut. More goodness at MySpace.
