New Single “Arcade Days” and Music Video Premiere

By January 1, 2019 No Comments

New single “Arcade Days” is a tribute to 1980’s video arcades and sci-fi movies done in collaboration with Joshua Blum and Brent Simon. The song features The Konami Code, a familiar cheat code that was popular in Konami produced games such as Contra, Gradius, etc.

Brent sent Josh and me some old unused musical ideas and we took one of his chord progressions and built a song around it. Then Josh drew up some pixel art and animated it for a music video.

Listen to a podcast where Jeff and Josh discuss the making of Arcade Days.
