On episode 29, I am joined by Jacob Tsafatinos of the band Good Kid - who’s latest EP - Good Kid 2 came out on November 6, 2020. This band is one of my favourite musical discoveries of 2020, with a sound reminiscent of The Strokes and Tokyo Police Club, with a little Fallout Boy or Panic at the Disco in vocals for good measure. What I love about the band is the visual and creative identity they have developed for themselves based on their passions and interests that lie outside of the music world, from video games to anime. We talk about the character the band has created called “Nomu” who is embedded in all of their album art - like Eddie from Iron Maiden - generating what they call “fan art friday”. We get into the creation of the band's very own 8-bit side scrolling video game called Good Kid - Ghost King's Revenge, and it's accompanying 8-bit soundtrack of their music - that they created themselves. We also talk about how they got their song “Witches” added to Fortnite radio on the ever popular video game - Fortnite.If you have music you would like us to hear, or have a great release day rollout plan you want the world to know about, send an email with your EPK and release plan to: firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you so much for listening, and Welcome to Release Day!Theme music composed by Evan Denley.Reference Links:Good Kid Website: https://goodkidofficial.com/DMCA: https://www.dmca.com/News from Twitch RE: DMCA: https://www.dexerto.com/entertainment/twitch-reaches-new-agreement-to-protect-streamers-from-dmca-strikes-1658617/Decolonial Clothing - https://decolonialclothingco.ca/Release Day Spotify Playlist - https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0GbiC5YorhQObK1n3FndhJ?si=l0sbbP1ARnaWaDbFRVzpEwRelease Day Website - https://releasedayseries.com/
