This Wild Life (comprised of Kevin Jordan & Anthony Del Grosso) are excited to share a new music video for their single 'Catie Rae,' taken from their forthcoming studio album titled 'Petaluma' which will be released by Epitaph Records on Friday, June 22.
The touching music video follows a couple from childhood to old age, as they ride bikes and watch TV on the couch together during different phases of life, and is the third video to be released in advance of 'Petaluma'. The video follows 'Westside,' which was directed by Spencer Baldwin, and 'Hold You Here,' which depicts a couple’s spontaneous city hall wedding and casual, friend-filled backyard reception.
Early on in the writing process for 'Petaluma', Jordan and Del Grosso made the mutual decision to make a record that felt brighter and more uptempo, a record they’d both want to listen to everyday. “This album is the first record we made with a clear vision before the first song was ever written,” Jordan says.“Something with the dynamics and emotion we’ve always strived for, but within the bounds of a bright, warm, and organic sonic energy flowing through it.”
In limiting the songs’ arrangements to only including instruments that can physically be played live, they opened the door to their most honest and explorative songwriting to date.
"At times, when it comes to my life, I am as fragile as the glass that adorns the album cover,” he continues about the overall mood of the album. “But like the sunflower at the center of its image, I will always seek the sun and its light. This record feels like the first hint of summer after wandering through the cold – it feels honest and true to us as artists and individuals. It feels damn good.”
'Petaluma' will be released by Epitaph Records on Friday, June 22.
