TODAY PREVIEW THE TRACK WITH TRAILER FOR UPCOMING SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-FOCUSED MUSIC VIDEO
New Los Angeles-based indie rock duo DARK SIDE OF LIGHT–conceived out of the pandemic to fill the anxiety-charged hours of our new normal–are closing out the very unusual summer of 2020 by celebrating the spirit of the endless summer with their cover of Seals and Crofts‘ “yacht rock” classic, “Summer Breeze.” Having already received airplay on KCRW after the band sent the track to DJ Liza Richardson who played it on her Saturday show, the band’s debut single will be released across all digital platforms this Friday, September 18.
Today (September 17), the duo–singer/songwriter/DJ Nik Frost (The Bangkok Five, Air Liquide) and Emmy Award-winning producer/engineer Grant Conway on drums–share a preview of the music video for “Summer Breeze” directed by Eden Tyler. It was shot in various locations around their hometown of Los Angeles, including the popular Valley Relics Museum in Van Nuys. Watch the preview directly via YouTubehere and stay tuned for its release.
“Since mid-March, some lost jobs, some lost love, and tragically some lost this precious thing we call life,” recalls NikFrost–a singer/songwriter/DJ who’s worked with everyone from Malcolm McLaren to Photek. “Somewhere in this endless summer loop of loss, me and a good friend found a classic track that while it might not be more than a band-aid in these times, we hope it can give everyone 3:49 back on this lost summer.”
“No graduations, no vacations, just lots of “NO’s,” says Grant Conway–a drummer by nature and a producer/engineer by trade. “No one got to do the usual things of summer. But I did find a little piece of nostalgia that seemed to offer a little bit of light, hope and love. Let’s close out the unusual summer of 2020 with some positive vibes, ‘Summer Breeze.'”
