New York alt-rock band Late Night Episode has released the video for their new single Golden Age! The new track is off their upcoming EP and is set to be added to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and featured on Sirius XM’s Alt-Nation. “I had the lyrics for the hook of ‘Golden Age’ written for a while before the instrumental came along” reveals lead singer Daniel Lonner. “I wanted to remind people that even though the internet is a wonderful world of its own, 2017 is the most opportune time to be alive and to live, you have to get out and do shit”. The new video follows the band’s adventures around New York City in an old convertible, giving it a nostalgic home movie aesthetic. “As for the making of the music video, we worked with our homie Patrick Golan to create the visual, which was shot on 16mm film” Lonner notes. “We wanted to capture the beauty of the places we hang out and grew up”.
Late Night Episode was formed in New York City’s East Village neighborhood by Lonner and guitarist Eric Sherman. Brett Daniel (drums) and Giovanni Stockton-Rossini (bass) would later join to complete the band’s line-up of stellar musicians and songwriters. Golden Age is the band’s third single release, following Talk About Love and Swim, which were also accompanied by a third release of an acoustic demo of Lost In Cali. The singles garnered enough buzz to catch the attention producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta of Dirty Canvas (American Authors, Young Rising Sons) who signed the band in late 2016. Billboard has praised their signature version of “rowdy rock,” and the group has drawn comparisons to artists like Kings of Leon. Late Night Episode is not only crossing the genres of rock and pop through their own music, but has expanded into other realms, having executive produced Topaz Jones‘ critically acclaimed soul-funk record Arcade.
