“Shiny New Model” Bodega

Bodega have shared the title track of their forthcoming EP, along with a video for “Shiny New Model.” The video was directed by Brian Ngai and stars the band themselves. Last winter, Ben Hozie (conductor, vocals, guitar), Nikki Belfiglio (art director, vocals, samples, hi hat), Heather Elle (bass), Madison Velding Vandam (lead guitar, producer), and the new addition of Tai Lee (stand-up percussionist) headed up to Power Station in Connecticut to record. The EP is the band’s first recording done with Tai Lee, its first session at a proper studio, and the first Bodega release produced within the group (production was handled by Vandam). Shiny New Model comes out on October 11th on What’s Your Rupture.
