New Orleans’ Video Age have shared a new track from their forthcoming album, Pleasure Line, set for release on August 7th via Winspear. Check out the energetic new song “Aerostar” and accompanying video below, directed by Zack Shorrosh.
Video Age on “Aerostar,” “This song looks at the bright side of being on the road. We did a lot of touring for the last album and it’s something that really brought us closer together as a band. Once we found a green screen studio big enough to fit our ’95 Ford Aerostar, we hopped in and let the story unfold.”
“Aerostar” follows the previously-released funk-inspired track “Shadow On The Wall,” which Gorillaz added to their G-Mix playlist and Pitchfork included on their Pitchfork Selects list, and the album title track “Pleasure Line,” which Paste called “a bright love song with a bouncing rhythm in line with the group’s usual funk-infused, retro sound,” and Brooklyn Vegan said, “Video Age recall the soft sophistipop groups of the ’80s like Prefab Sprout and China Crisis…very mellow, silk-smooth.”
