“I Can’t Be Your Superman” music video

January 6, 2016 12:09 pm

Nylon premieres the music video for Skylar Spence’s “I Can’t Be Your Superman” from their debut, Prom King, released earlier this year. The video was directed by Maegan Houang.

“Four singles into Prom King, I started to feel we’d explored the ‘budding romance’ trope to its fullest extent in our music videos,” said Ryan DeRobertis, aka Skylar Spence. “So when it came time to discuss ideas for ‘I Can’t Be Your Superman,’ the last video accompanying the LP, I was ready to try something new for a change. Originally we’d thought of an idea where my live band and I would participate in a mock episode of a cooking show (think Cutthroat Kitchen), but when that proved to be a logistical nightmare, we linked up with Maegan Houang who conceptualized something REALLY rad! It’s part nail salon nightmare, part Daft Punk homage, and those who are uncomfortable with unhappy endings should steer clear!”

Skylar Spence Beatport Remix Contest

January 5, 2016 12:28 pm

Big news! After picking up steam with their debut album Prom King, Skylar Spence has teamed up with Beatport to start the year off with a remix contest.

Here’s how it works:
“DeRobertis has fine-tuned his sound and style through hard work and perseverance in the studio. And now you can do the same by taking part in the latest Play remix contest by grabbing Skylar Spence’s ultra-riffy, bass-driven track, “I Can’t Be Your Superman” and turning it into an attention-getting remix. You could win your own release on Carpark Records, a pair of Sennheiser HD6 headphones, iZoptope Ozone 7, and more. The deadline for entry ends on February 1st, so take it and remake it while you can.”

Submissions can be made here. Happy remixing!

TEEN shares second single “Tokyo” and announce tour dates

January 5, 2016 10:24 am

Happy New Year! TEEN is starting the year off the right way with their second single, “Tokyo.” You can stream it now via NPR. The track is from their forthcoming album Love Yes, pre-orders available on the Carpark shop & iTunes.

“The chirping sounds and sterling voices on “Tokyo” disguise an all-too-real story about a crumbling marriage and infidelity. Teeny Lieberson’s lyrics take a dramatic leap forward as she analyzes the complexities of aging relationships, sensuality, and misogyny that all too often goes unchecked.”

The band will also be hitting the road this winter in support of the new album. Full list of dates and ticket links can be found here.
February 14th – Brooklyn, NY – Union Pool
February 16th – Philadelphia, PA – Ortlieb’s
February 17th – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery
February 18th – Pittsburgh, PA – Club Cafe
February 19th – Louisville, KY – Zanzabar
February 20th – Lakewood, OH – Mahall’s
February 21st – Chicago, IL – Hideout Inn
February 22nd – Cincinnati, OH – Monday Night at the Comet
