The Classic Kids know how to keep it real.
Getting their start in 2013, as a band Eric James, Matty Boy, Max Dean, and Mikey G blend the retro with the modern, creating an upbeat, infectious alt-pop sound that not only tells a story but has also allowed them to create a unique connection with their ever-growing fan base.
The Brooklyn-based quartet recently released their new single "Better Days," a high energy anthem crafted at the hands of acclaimed producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta of Dirty Canvas (American Authors, Young Rising Sons). "We were looking to write a song that was very positive but also was easy to listen to," the band told Musical Notes Global. "We feel the song is extremely uplifting with its meaning and in tandem with the visual we really got that message across. We hope that people know when they hear the song that your worst moments are only temporary and that tomorrow is always a brighter day."
The track is the highly anticipated follow up to their critically acclaimed debut EP. Going along with it is a kaleidoscopic music video that takes viewers on a lighthearted romp through New York City as the group performs random acts of kindness for people they meet along the way. "The idea for the music video was to show that it doesn't take much to brighten up someone's day," they said. "We came up with several small deeds we could do for strangers. The results really opened our eyes because we never stop to get to know anyone anymore. Everyone has a story and we feel that not only did we learn something hopefully we showed that people can bring positive change."
We dare you to not smile while watching this music video. Check out "Better Days" below!
