The sun is out today, the weather is cooler than normal and it’s a perfect day for a sunny, breezy pop song! My man Terry Price, who records under the moniker Photo Ops, is providing the perfect summer tune today with his new track “Time For an Innocent Song”. It’s a lovely bit of music which catches your attention with a little acoustic ditty as it slowly builds into hazy pop number with hushed vocals and perfectly timed drums. It’s equal parts Fruit Bats mixed with CSNY and little touch of pop sensibilities. Check it out now.
Photo Ops will release a new album entitled Pure at Heart sometime later this year.
Friday night has some great options for you this weekend here in the ATX, and while it’s going to be a bit chilly out, I’ve got the perfect show to keep you nice and warm. Tracyanne & Danny are bringing along Photo-Ops to 3TEN ACL Live for a night of indie pop that is bound to dispel all bad vibes from the cold front. Opener Photo-Ops dropped a killer single that I shared with you last week, and has new materials in the works that are all sunshine. Tracyanne (of Camera Obscura) & Danny put out a killer record last year that checks the box of bedroom pop with stunning vocals and a little bit of bluegrass-ish swagger to it. You can buy pretty cheap tickets here, which I suggest you do, as it’s gonna be a great evening. Terry Price, the man behind Photo-Ops, obliged us to give us some brief answers to some random questions. Tunes and interview are after the jump!
Most of the country is cold and frozen, but in the ATX all we have is a little bit of gray skies and some rain on this Friday. Wherever you may be, we’re getting to that stretch of winter where we’re itching for March, ready to shed those jackets and get out in the sunshine. We are pretty blessed in Austin to get to experience that year round, but until it’s bright and shiny again here, I’m going to just push repeat on this track from Photo-Ops, as it’s almost four minutes of pure bliss. Photo-Ops is the moniker LA based singer/songwriter, Terry Price, who has been making alt-folk tunes for some time now. The biggest change in this new sound is the pivot to rock and Price’s vocals are like a splash of cold water on a hot day in, well, July. It’s difficult not to be drawn back to this track over and over, so give into the warmth and jam right along.
We in Austin are lucky, as Photo-Ops will be making their way to 3Ten ACL Live to play alongside Tracyanne and Danny, so get ready to boogie with them on Feb 8.
