Today, Phoenix have released the video for “Role Model” exclusively on fashion video network, Made to Measure (M2M).
Marrying documentary footage of legendary fashion photographer Helmut Newton with performance shots of the band, the “Role Model” video — by Australian creative agency Lost Art — is an instant classic, timelessly capturing the magic of the mid 80’s, much like Ti Amo itself.
The video premieres right in time for the band’s first, sold out ‘Ti Amo Speciale’ residency, happening in their hometown of Paris, France at La Gaîté Lyrique, where the critically acclaimed Ti Amo was written and recorded. Similar five-night residences will occur in NYC at Brooklyn Steel this July, and Los Angeles at the Fonda Theatre this September.
LA/NY quartet BRAEVES began with childhood best friends Ryan Colt Levy and Derek Tramont, who’ve been together before the dawn of social media. Having experimented with a wide range of styles and sounds over the years, it wasn’t until the addition of Thomas Killian McPhillips VII in late 2012 that things fell into place and BRAEVES was born. From there the music grew organically into its own unique blend of soulful Indie Rock and Pop that it is today. They are now joined by LA born-and-raised singer/guitarist, Scott Goldbaum, whose beautifully textured vocal sound and dynamic guitar playing has elevated them to uncharted territory that they are just beginning to explore.
BRAEVES released “Pull Me In,” the first single with Goldbaum as lead vocalist and new collaborator, longtime friend and producer, Grayson Sanders (Snowmine) at the helm.
Nini Fabi and Benjamin Gebert (aka HAERTS) bring us their new song “Your Love”, featured in the forthcoming season two of Netflix’s hit show 13 Reasons Why, joining Selena Gomez, Logic, Billie Eilish, Lord Huron, and others on the soundtrack. The Brooklyn-based band are also excited to announce they’re headed to Toronto for Field Trip Festival on June 3 alongside Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Alvvays, Metric, Allan Rayman, Japandroids, and more.
Yukon Blonde today shares a fourth single “Too Close To Love” from their forthcoming album. Opening with nostalgic ’80s tinged, pulsating synths, “Too Close To Love” epitomizes the feeling of the record and sits comfortably between a guitar heavy post-punk and club ready dance music aesthetic. Inspired by Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being the track ruminates about the heaviness of decisions when dealing with matters of love.
