Star and the Sea releases music video in time for Glass House Rocks
It seems that these days a student band releases a new music video every week, reminding everyone else that some people are able to be both full-time scholars and rockstars on the side (it’s okay, my mom still thinks I’m special). This week was no exception, with band Star and the Sea’s “Winter in New York” appearing on YouTube yesterday.
The video features the band—vocalist Dominique Star, CC ’13, bass player Natalie Weiner, CC ’13, drummer Isaac Bunch, CC ’14, guitarist Blake Cowan, CC ’13, and, on keys, Emily Hamilton, CC ’13—playing in a candlelit lounge to a couple of students bopping along and drinking wine (is this something people do? How can I get in on it?). Star’s rich vocals, accompanied by light harmonies on the choruses and the irresistible strum of the ukulele, make for a catchy tune that is summery despite its wintry name.
Video and more after the jump.
Star and the Sea is headed to the second Battle of the Bands at tomorrow’s Glass House Rocks in hopes of opening for CCSC’s recently-announced Bacchanal kickoff concert (SIN)esthesia. With their strong performance at the first Battle of the Bands and a new video to spread the buzz about their indie-soul sound, Star and the Sea seems to be entering the battlefield with confidence.
