Here’s the new music video from Goldenboy’s third album, Sleepwalker!! Hope you enjoy! There’s a cool explanation of where the footage is from below….
Here’s the interview from Spinner.com, where the video was the featured video of the day:
“This is one of those rare occasions where the video came first, inspiring the song,” Goldenboy’s Shon Sullivan tells Spinner. “A couple of years ago I spent a summer at a friend’s house in Faenza, Italy…Being the perpetual super-snooper that I am, I had to go through everything. Off in one corner I found a canvas sack with a bunch of film tins that still had actual 16mm film in them, along with a home movie projector.”
“I brought them back to the house and played them. Most of the films were too oxidized from time, but then there was this one that had these two kids by the seaside, with seagulls, starfish and waves. It immediately took me back to my own childhood of camping on the beach and making friends for a day with people you would never see again.”
“There was no sound with the film but if you put your head really close to the projector, like when you put your ear next to a seashell to hear the ocean, the click, click, click of the turning film reels made a looping sound sequence that I tried to duplicate on the keyboard, along with musical swells for ocean waves.”

How many Halloween’s did we have this year? I don’t remember, it was all a blur to me too.. I’m guessing by the assortment of costumes used in this video there were at least 2 Halloweens, but maybe 3.. Anyways, this is how Wallpaper. did Halloween n junk this year in some legit looking Burt and Ernie costumes and then some..
For most people, driving past endless truck stops and dusty, sun-drenched freeway towns doesn’t really inspire much creativity. In fact, such uneventful treks can tend to be pretty boring for everyone involved. This isn’t the case for Wallpaper., as Ricky Reed checked in from the road somewhere in Nevada during Wallpaper.’s current tour with an impromptu car rehearsal of his newest creation, “Indian Summer”.
The song, a singalong, synthed-out road trip jam, captures the feeling of being stuck on the road for hours on end, driving in oppressively hot Autumn conditions towards a more enjoyable destination.
Ricky even says so himself, introducing the video with these words:
“Touring is hard! While we’re off driving through random parts of Nevada, the SF Bay Area is having an Indian Summer and the Giants win the World Series! Wish we were home today celebrating with yall! So this desert driving tour rehearsal of our new song also titled “Indian Summer” is a tribute to our favorite place to be when its hot in Autumn. Brought to you courtesy of flip camera, duct tape, and red bull.”
