Tetherball shares “Spring Chicken” video

Just on the heels of debut LP Whimsy‘s release, Tetherball has dropped a new video for album cut “Spring Chicken.” The humorous video follows the life of a brave and ambitious little teddy bear and it premiered with Nashville Scene, who said in their review of Whimsy “Voss is able to draw a sense of coherence out of a remarkably varied palette that at times lands somewhere in the realm of jazz-folk but also touches on a vaudevillian brand of herky-jerky circus rock, country blues twang and elegiac balladry so convincingly rendered it’ll stop you in your tracks.”
