video age – “days to remember”

the new orleans duo video age have trafficked in lush, infectious synth-pop for a minute now; their 2016 debut living alone is a chilled-out, ten-track collection populated by washes of analog synthesizers and warbly guitar lines, its adroit vocal melodies providing the finishing touch.  tomorrow, ross farbe and ray micarelli will release their follow-up, pop therapy, its advance singles providing every indication that this full-length will be as enticing as its predecessor.

the latest of those singles, “days to remember,” finds video age riding a crisp chord progression, its titular hook augmented by a nimble guitar motif as it imprints its contours on auditory senses.  throw in a scene-stealing synth melody courtesy of collaborator duncan troast, and “days to remember” becomes the perfect vessel of fond recollection, its brief pauses providing just a tinge of melancholy.

pop therapy arrives tomorrow via inflated records.  check out “days to remember” below.
