Its alive!!!! Thanks to Nicholas Ortiz of Deviant Children Productions!
Had a great time at Coney Island Film Festival 2014 on Saturday, we got to see our band’s video, Bullet Time on the big screen!
It was well received by a full house at a sold out session (we were in one of the only two sold out sessions – out of sixteen sessions overall). The competition was tough and there were some much higher budget films there and a music video that did the old triple ending trick to garner applause, but hey, ya gotta pull out all the stops right?
Anyway, cheers to Dead Red Eyes for a great video (we are also in the NY Indie Film Fest, Thurs 16th October 2014!) and we look forward to getting another video together in the coming weeks. Loads of EP finalising between now and then as we aim to get the 2nd EP finalised soon (songs confirmed, just need some final cuts) in time for CMJ Music Marathon in late October.
Coney trash. Trash Coney!
Thursday the 18th we are playing at Trash bar in W’burg. Stereo Off is at 10pm. Its $7 to get in, and there is an open bar in the stage area from 8-9pm, so start Thursday right with some free booze at least.

Double Brooklyn week!
Here is our first music video – Bullet Time, off of our first EP “Stereo Off New York EP5, aka, SONY EP5”.
Let us know what you think and thanks for all the likes and comments already. Cheers to http://www.deadredeyes.com for the making of and directing and thanks to all the people that helped out, acted in, let us use apartments, bars, etc.
The video is a bit of an homage to retro NYC circa the 70’s and 80’s perhaps, or at least that’s the vibe we were going for. In true low-budget indie spirits we were involved from creating the plot and story line, all the way down to going through all the takes and amends (in fact, our bassist even did the video editing on this) to final cuts, which is frankly as DIY as it gets.
Busy weekend for the band as we start finalizing the photo shoot takes from the previous weekend, in the meantime moving on to the music video shoots. The picture above is a hint. Its old school. Its black and white.
So the weekend update had to wait a couple days as we were out and about, but another week, and some more coverage. Newswhistle put together an awesome piece and interview with the band at A Great White With A Blindfold: What Unsigned Brooklyn Band Is Sharpening Its Teeth. Citing a mix of 80’s bands and recent NYC bands of much hype. Quote: “this band is moving fast towards golden indie shores”. Nice one. You can also find 3 of the Non-EP tracks on that article too.
And then moving back to the EP itself, a bonus review this week that nearly flew under my radar, from the Equal Ground.
“the most eclectic electronic sounds with the most down to earth rock tones and crashes them together to create an enthralling experience” & “This is cool! Seriously cool!”. Thanks to both sites for the coverage, reviews and interviews.
So not a bad weekend after all. Still plenty of work to do on the video though…. couple more sessions in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
