"Badlands" Music Video by Smoke Season

photo_34133Smoke Season‘s first single, “Badlands,” off their forthcoming Hot Coals / Cold Souls EP expresses the ambience of a dust storm brewing in a ghost town. And a song with such a vigorous vibe naturally deserves a cinematic counterpart. Its music video shows the coed duo loitering around decrepit buildings in Joshua Tree (their sonically apt habitat) while playing with paint, cards, and guns. And yes, there’s plenty of smoky haze foreshadowing an eerie climax:

Free Bike Valet is proud to co-present Smoke Seasons‘ next performances at The Echoplex on August 4th and 18th.

"Badlands" by Smoke Season (Premiere)

Smoke_Season_PressSmoke Season is the collaboration of Gabrielle Wortman (of TEMP3ST) and Jason Rosen (formerly of Honor Society). The Hollywood-based coed duo brings experimental electronics to a Western soundstage by stomping out rhythms and layering haunting elements. But their not-so-secret weapon is Wortman’s wailing voice –always thick with soul and haze. Here’s their latest single, “Badlands,” off their forthcoming second EP, Hot Coals / Cold Souls, (due July 29th) which expresses the ambience of a dust storm brewing in a ghost town:

Smoke Season will next perform on May 27th at The Mint along with DOE EYE, Color You, and Galvarino.
