A new video for the acclaimed single “Judy French” has just emerged too. White Reaper’s standout single “Judy French” off their critically acclaimed and overall monster of an album, The World’s Best American Band, gets the video treatment it deserves. Directed by Brandon Dermer (co-creator and director of the forthcoming Viceland show, What Would Diplo Do?), the video stars actress Alexandra Daddario (True Detective, Baywatch) giving the song her best arena-rock performance.

The band and Dermer spoke to Noisey about the making of the video. Read it HERE.

Make sure to come out and see why people are singing the praises about this band, like when NPR caught them at this year’s SXSW… “White Reaper’s latest single is called ‘The World’s Best American Band,’ which might seem a little hyperbolic until you’ve seen it live.


Previous praise for White Reaper:

“…the feral snarl of MC5, the itchy, rhythmic spasms of post-punk, golden-era tunefulness.”  – Pitchfork

“Ramshackle riffing served with delightfully disorientating synth arrangements… Ramones-inspired chaos” – NME

“it’s all about speed, compression, fuzz and the melodic potential of the drone for these boys.” – The Guardian

“this is debauched, delinquent punk delivered with a sneer on its chops.”

– Clash

“a high-intensity mix of fuzz-slathered guitars, humping drums and sugary keyboards” – Q

“unrelenting garage-punk outbursts” – The Line of Best Fit

“The fuzzy garage rock of White Reaper has an inspiring groove”

– The Independent


“Their tracks are loaded with hooks.” London In Stereo

“crammed with short powerpop gems” – Uncut

“There’s very little here that won’t make you want to get up and dance.” – Rock Sound

“If the title of their new album, ‘The World’s Best American Band,’ is to be believed, yes. Yes they are.” – Noisey

“White Reaper’s latest single is called ‘The World’s Best American Band,’ which might seem a little hyperbolic until you’ve seen it live.” – NPR

“It’s [Judy French] a power-pop radio-blaster built from old Camaro parts, and you won’t be surprised to learn that it’s rad as hell.” – Stereogum

“The garage punks made a good case for such a self-proclamation on previous single “‘Judy French’, but their new title track may have just 110% sealed the deal – it’s time to hand out the trophies.” – Consequence of Sound
