I’m gonna be honest, a lot of times we post a premiere from a band here and then I forget about it five seconds later and go back to wasting my entire day (and life) on Twitter. But in pleasantly surprising turn of event, I think that this track “Break”, and its found footage vignette video, from LA Y2k-wave five piece Night Riots is going to stick in my rotation.
“Break conjures images of timeless youthful love,” singer Travis Hawley says of the song from their recently released Howl album. “We represented this idea by using antique film cuts of lovers kissing. At one point these clips were considered risqué and audacious. But looking back on them from our modern perspective they seem so romantic in their confident and daring innocence.”
