Video Age Drop New Video “Golden Sun”
Video Age have shared “Golden Sun,” the third single off their new album Away From The Castle, out October 27th via Winspear. Over strummed acoustic guitars and sun soaked synthesizers, the band imagines a day in the life of the lonesome protagonist from the Kinks’ classic “Waterloo Sunset,” of which Ray Micarelli says, “it’s one of the loneliest songs ever, but it’s also one of my favorites. I wanted to write about what happens to the protagonist from that song when they wake up in the morning.”
Across four albums, longtime friends and songwriting partners Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli have gleefully worn their influences on their sleeve, writing inviting tunes that reference sounds ranging from disco to pop and indie rock. For their latest LP, they’ve thrown nostalgia out the window, embracing their own unique sense of musicality for an album that feels like Video Age distilled to its purest form.
Inspired by sessions working on Drugdealer’s album Hiding In Plain Sight, and with Farbe further honing his production skills with artists like Esther Rose, the band decamped to a remote cabin for eight days jamming, cooking, and writing together. Joined by touring members Nick Corson and Duncan Troast, Away From The Castle is a document of a band having fun and rediscovering their love for making music together, all while making their best songs to date.
