Eleven member indie outfit Typhoon have premiered their new video for “Prosthetic Love.” The track, off the band’s acclaimed album ‘White Lighter’ (released August 20, 2013 via Roll Call Records), was also featured in the movie adaptation of “Veronica Mars” and was directed by Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Robyn).
Lead singer/songwriter, Kyle Morton says, “The song – in a tiny nutshell – is about displacing ideas of love and god onto other people, despite any actual consent from the other person. The logical deduction is that if everyone is doing this, then identity itself becomes speculative, not determinate.”
NPR All Songs Considered described ‘White Lighter’ as having “Mighty, powerful songs whose instrumentation conveys big, bold joy. ‘White Lighter’ takes the promise they’ve shown and delivers completely. The uplifting melodies and rhythms that sway and swing, mixed with lyrics about hopeless dreams and cold realities, works so well.” SPIN adds, “This latest epic dives into the group’s enormous range: Morton’s earnest vocals lead the charge, his wondrous delivery flanked by left-field riffage, sudden fits of silence, chirping backup singers, and triumphant horns – and those are just a few of the sounds thriving inside.”

Typhoon’s successful year of touring culminated appropriately with an epic performance at Central Park alongside Portugal. the Man and Grouplove, who the band had been supporting on tour.
