About Video Age
With an intimate, home-recorded spin on '80s pop and new wave, Video Age emerged in 2016 with the punk-tinged Living Alone. They committed more fully to jazzier guitar tones and bright, '80s Casio-eliciting timbres thereafter, including on their Winspear label debut, 2020's Pleasure Line.
Video Age were formed in New Orleans by the songwriting team of Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli, who both sing and play multiple instruments for the project. Their first album, Living Alone, appeared on Inflated Records in mid-2016. The duo returned two years later with the sweeter Pop Therapy, which included contributions from keyboard player Duncan Troast and bassist Nick Corson. Corson and Troast became official members for Video Age's Winspear debut, 2020's Pleasure Line. Like their previous albums, it was recorded and mixed by Farbe. ~ Marcy Donelson
