Halfnoise otherwise known as Zac Farro has just released his newest music video Someday from The Velvet Face EP. As You’d expect from Farro, the video for the track is comprised solely of footage shot on a vintage camcorder with analog effects added in afterwards. It’s been a busy year for the multi-talented musician, after releasing his previous EP Sudden Feeling, he toured the US and UK, before releasing The Velvet Face. He then rejoined his old bandmates in Paramore for their recent release After Laughter and ongoing tour dates.
This is definitely the most important piece of music, to me personally, that I’ve ever written or worked on to-date with HALFNOISE. Not only was it special for me as an artist and writer but from my friends who played, collaborated, and shared with me in making something so special. – Zac Farro

After their success of 2015’s Grow, CHON have released their second studio album; Homey via Sumerian Records. Full of electronica mixed with guitar vibes, this album draws from their time recording and rehearsing on the Southern California coast. True to this is Nayhoo, check it out below:
“We’re super proud to show everyone our new album “Homey”. This time we tried a lot of new things out that we’ve always wanted to do, one of which being the chance to collab with a bunch of our favorite artists of all time, so this is a really special album to us. The loose concept behind the name “Homey” comes from the music being inspired by where we live in Southern California. A lot of magical moments went into the creation of this thing, and we hope you feel ‘em” – CHON
