LIVING DAYS is a dark romantic pop band from New York City. The three long time friends are especially known for their energetic impressive live shows that give a home to vocalist Stephonik Youth‘s strongest suit; a live performer. Multi instrumentalists Gustavo Andrade and Josh Werner create dark, driving, synthy landscapes for her heart felt stream of consciousness written lyrics arranged in pop form. Producer Josh Werner is also a member of Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, and writes and performs with Lee Scratch Perry and CocoRosie. Stephonik collaborates with Neil Davidge (of Massive Attack and composer for video game Halo). Their song Slo Light was the title track of Davidge’s debut solo record released Spring 2014 on End Records. LIVING DAY’S song, Little White Lie, was featured on the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack on Twin Shadows station, Mirror Park.
To accompany their full length album debut entitled, Dance Not Dead, on Federal Prism records, LIVING DAYS is creating short ‘films’ for select tracks. Guitarist and visual artist Gustavo Andrade helms this endeavor as editor and director of photography. Preferring art that is a conversation rather than monologue though, they are excited to have stepped out of the studio and back out into the world of collecting, collaboration, and performance. They have shows booked in New York and Los Angeles late summer and fall 2014.
