Pegase – Old Idol

In Pegase‘s “Old Idol” video we start off with a kid half-stumbling out of a window, looking a bit dazed and then breaking into a run as he pulls his hood up. Is he abandoning a home invasion or running to something? The camera pans around and we see him break into a smile, and then we see the girl that sparked it. At this point the narrative seems like it’s going to go down the “teenagers in love sneaking out at night” path, but throughout the video there are subtle flashes (like the heaviness as they stand at the trailhead and the shadow of gravity on their faces upon seeing the truck) that point to something other than a clandestine night on the horizon.

young empires mix

Young Empires is on tour and coming to Madison and we asked them to make us a mixtape before their show on Wednesday, February 6th at The Frequency. The band’s contribution turned out better than we could hope for, expertly mixed and with an amazing flow. We’ve been sitting on the mix for a week waiting for the track list and a name, but we can’t keep it from you any longer. Give it a listen, get pumped, and check back to see if we were able to fill in the gaps of what we couldn’t sleuth out. When we released the mix earlier this week we didn’t have a full track list, but we’ve got it now and are further impressed with its expert craft. Please enjoy and let us know what you think (and be sure to give the boys a big thank you for giving us such a wonderful mix)!
