OTHER AMERICANS Premiere Retro-Futuristic Video for "Neon Sunrise" off Self-Titled EP out Oct. 1st
With glossy gracefulness, Other Americans have perfectly translated their radiant noir aesthetic from sound to visuals with their new video for “Neon Sunrise”, the first single from of their upcoming self-titled EP out October 1, 2019. The video premieres today on Popdoseand features towering projections of singer Julie Berndsen over a futuristic cityscape brought to life by directors Todd Norris and Mitch Brian. “We created a “Neon Sunrise” world of mirrored cityscapes that owes a bit to Blade Runner, which takes place in 2019 after all,” explain the directors exclusively to Popdose. “Julie Berndsen breaks the boundaries of her 2D projection screen to connect with our lonely heroine and becomes her neon sunrise. In the end, it’s about how music can throw us a lifeline when we feel alone.”
Launching a retro-futuristic attack on synth-drenched electro rock, OTHER AMERICAN‘s second self-titled EP dives head first into the delicate balance between love and power. Featuring members of such iconic Kansas City/Lawrence bands as The Architects, The Gadjits, Radar State, and Late Night Callers, Other Americans will be releasing the EP on October 1, 2019. The Other Americans EP includes five brand new songs as well as three additional remixes, courtesy of guitarist Brandon Phillips’ EDM project MENSA DEATHSQUAD.
