Music Video: Smoke Season, “Good Days”

0 Comments 07 August 2017

Smoke Season embraces a lust for life in this music video for the band’s sunny anthem, “Good Days.”

Following an extensive tour last Summer, Gabrielle Wortman and Jason Rosen of the electro-soul group Smoke Season were back to the lab come October. Stated Wortman of the songwriting process in our January interview: “It kind of goes in the opposite direction of the political climate, actually. I think we needed a bit more release. The world has gotten darker, but we’re finding the light in music.”

Moving away from past weighty subjects as immigration and gay rights, this sonic lane change first arrived with the buoyant, breezy summer jam, “Good Days.” We highlighted it in a Track of the Day post a couple of months ago, and now Smoke Season’s ode to livin’ la dolce vita has appropriately upbeat video to boot.

The video comes from frequent collaborator Scott Fleishman, who recently helmed videos for Snoop Dogg, Yellow Claw, Elliphant, DJ Snake, and has a history of collaborations with Kendrick Lamar. It was shot entirely on 8mm film, delivering a hazy, 70s-infused vibe of nostalgia. Put on your swim trunks, pop the tab, and bring your butt. The bonfire is a-rollin’.
