New From The Airborne Toxic Event
It’s been nearly three years since The Airborne Toxic Event had their biggest hit, “Sometime Around Midnight” playing on the airwaves. Since then, the band has been hard at work on a new album. The time has finally come for them to release the new album, called All At Once.
The album will be released on April 26th, but they’ve already created a music video for the song “Half of Something Else.” What do you think of the song and video? I had high hopes for this band back in 2008 but they never seemed to be able to crack the Hot 100 on the Billboard charts. However, they did earn a loyal indie-music following, so that’s always a step in the right direction toward mainstream and fame-dom. But, perhaps they like being on that track, you know? Some bands prefer it.
This new video looks promising. It’s not for their latest single, “Changing,” (which already has a music video– see it here), but it’s good exposure, and maybe they’ll release this song as a single eventually. I like the quirky carousel and the string orchestra playing in the background (well done, violinist sitting on the carousel horse with weird posture but still looking natural). It’s also kind of refreshing to see an indie band member without a beard. Just saying.
