OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Long Beach based trio half•alive have released the video for their new single “Summerland” via RCA Records. Watch BELOW. “Summerland” is written by half•alive and Skyler Stonestreet and produced by OJIVOLTA (Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Jon Bellion) along with additional production by the band.
half•alive says, ““Summerland” was created from a conversation about patterns I had with my uncle in Oakland, CA sometime last year, specifically, about the patterns of life as seen through the seasons… How the seasons show us the same pattern of the day, & of our life stage, & so much more. I became so fascinated by this pattern & how structural it is to music & art & literature.. The romance & fruit of summer (noon, maturity), giving way to the dramatic dying of Autumn (sunset, old age), to the death of Winter (midnight, death), & the rebirth of Spring (sunrise, youth).We’ve always wanted to write a summer song, but the depth of this story made it feel like the summer song of all summer songs. It’s night swims & dancing & late nights with friends & the beach & sun tans, but it’s so much more as well. Summer is the beginning & the end of the story, the golden hour of romance, where all of life is at peace with God & each other & in ourselves, where freedom is savored & where we want to remain forever. So at a glance, it’s just a summer song, but under the surface, it’s that & so much more.”
Additionally, half•alive have announced a run of headlining west coast shows including a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on September 16th and Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival on September 19th. The band will be hitting the road this fall with Twenty One Pilots on their “Takeover” tour which starts in Denver, CO on September 22nd. Tickets are on-sale now.
