The Shelters - "Birdwatching" (video) (premiere)

The new major label signees premiere a video from their Tom Petty co-produced EP.

Los Angeles foursome the Shelters have a very good thing going for them these days. Their self-titled debut EP was co-produced by Tom Petty, and they've recently signed with Warner Bros. Records. That wave of positivity continues with the video for the great track "Birdwatching", which can be seen below.

"'Birdwatching' is the first song we've ever made a video for, and we wanted to keep it simple," the band says. "We tried to capture the band in its element - rehearsing and hanging in a place we like to go to find inspiration."
