Smoke Season Release Sun-Kissed Video For "Good Days"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Los Angeles buzz-band Smoke Season has released the new music video for their latest single, "Good Days." The pulsating alt-pop anthem combines an earworm chorus with bouncy synths and is accompanied by a nostalgic, sun-kissed new video, available on the band's VEVO channel.

The video, shot entirely on 8mm film, delivers a heavy dose of the 1970s vibe that has recently become synonymous with Smoke Season. "Good Days" is directed by longtime Smoke Season collaborator, Scott Fleishman, (of APLUSFILMZ) who recently handled videos for Snoop Dogg, Yellow Claw, Elliphant, DJ Snake, and became known for collaborations with Kendrick Lamar over the years.

Produced by Fabian Ordorica (Goldroom), "Good Days" puts Smoke Season's artistic craft and genre-breaking skills at the core of their infectious pop, with Gabrielle Wortman's fierce vocals and Jason Rosen's distinctive guitar work layered with bursts of saxophone from guest instrumentalist James Ragusa.

"Good Days" is the first release from Smoke Season's upcoming perspective fresh mixtape due out later this year and also marks an evolution in the band's sonic direction as a whole. In their new material, we see them exploring anthemic, up tempo melodies and feel-good instrumentation over the atmospheric, down tempo sound of their previous EPs. The shift, they explain, has been both intentional and accidental.
"The political situation in the America has gotten so heavy that we were desperate to create art that was a reprieve from that. On the other hand, we've growing as individuals and so are our personal artistic tastes so the changes have been really natural."

Previously, the band's 2016 Ouroboros EP featured a series of inventive videos and built a growing fan base dialed into the duo's activism for social causes. Most recently, the short film they created in tandem with their Ouroboros EP premiered at 2017 Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner and is being featured at the 2017 Holly Shorts Film Festival in August.
