TERRAPLANE SUN RELEASE VIDEO FOR “GET ME GOLDEN”

YA NEVER KNOW EP TO BE RELEASED ON JULY 16TH VIA TRAUMA 2 RECORDS

Terraplane Sun have released a video for the song “Get Me Golden” which is on the band’s forthcoming EP Ya Never Know, to be released on July 16th via Trauma 2 Records. The video can be seen here. “Get Me Golden”, the lead single, is available on iTunes now.

Having kicked things off recently as an opener to Imagine Dragons at the Hollywood Palladium, the band is set to tour throughout the Summer in support of the new EP.

Frontman Ben Rothbard dishes on “Get Me Golden”, “Golden was written with the notion that if you really want something, you gotta go and get it. One thing we’ve learned as a band, and even as just individuals, is that very little will fall in your lap…and if it does, chances are it won’t happen again. You need to really go after exactly what you want, whether it’s love, a goal, a challenge, etc.”

Hailing from Venice, California, TERRAPLANE SUN is comprised of frontman Ben Rothbard, guitarist Johnny Zambetti, bassist Cecil Campanaro, keyboardist Gabe Feenberg and drummer Lyle Riddle.

Self-described as ?blues indie rock folk dance soul,? TERRAPLANE SUN blends all of that and more into a rootsy rock cocktail that defies any specific era. While their music occasionally evokes stylings of THE BLACK KEYS or PHOENIX, they?re not married to any trend or scene. It?s what happens when four-fifths of your lineup is born and bred in SoCal, pulling together just the right recipe of shared and disparate influences. Frontman Rothbard explains, ?I wanted to make this a very classic, somewhat vintage-based band, where all the tones were kind of timeless, and let the songs do their thing.?

TERRAPLANE SUN?s vision has rounded into shape in a distinctive way. The band?s eclectic musical colorings include harmonica (Rothbard), lap steel, accordion and trombone, (Feenberg) and mandolin (Zambetti). ?Each band member?s musical input is virtually irreplaceable,? says Rothbard. ?It would be very hard to create this sound with other players.? ?The wide range of musical influences has melded into this unique collective unit,? muses Zambetti. It?s the live show where the well crafted songs and varied musical elements combine with raw energy, musicianship and showmanship? forging a powerful connection to the audience each night.

Perhaps it’s the cinematic quality of their music that has afforded the young TERRAPLANE SUN such swift recognition from the Hollywood creative community. Their distinct sound has found placement in several high profile productions, including big-screen hits like 21 Jump Street, Playing for Keeps, as well as popular TV series like Teen Wolf, Suits, Franklin & Bash, Nurse Jackie, and the theme for A&E?s show Relapse?to name a few.

After tucking themselves away last year writing and preproduction, the band went into the studio with producer Dave Trumfio (MY MORNING JACKET, WILCO) to record their current five song EP entitled, Ya Never Know.

The first single ?Get Me Golden? was written after Rothbard had been involved in discussions about defying the sometimes-disheartening music industry by forging ahead with new energy. He explains, ?I woke up the next morning, and the hook played in my head? a danceable Motown energy is what I was hearing. I called Johnny and he came over right away to fill it out.? The song exemplifies the progression the band has made musically, expanding on their early bluesy style to embrace the more varied elements of the music they?ve been influenced by. Rothbard reflects, ?My parents listened to 95% Motown when I was growing up, and everyone in the band has influences that include mainstream, even pop?to round out our love of blues.? Zambetti adds, ?The confidence of digging deeper and incorporating these elements in interesting ways is what makes the TERRAPLANE SUN sound unique.?

The song ?Ya Never Know,? with its trickling ivories and heady vocals, has lyrics that seem to inspire many interpretations from listeners?a quality that is fine with the band??If we can give exercise to the imagination, that?s a good thing.?

In support of the Ya Never Know EP, the band above all looks forward to hitting the road with the new songs?giving and receiving the special energy that comes only in the concert environment. Their intense and intimate live show is just as impressive headlining clubs as it is opening for the likes of ALABAMA SHAKES or IMAGINE DRAGONS. LA Times writes, ?The Venice psych/blues rocker puts on one of the most intense live shows in the city?s local scene. It pulls from the riffage of Zeppelin and the hippy-dippy vibes of their neighborhood, but with enough California pop sunshine to make it go down easy.?
