A few weeks back we premiered a tasty new track from way cool St. Augustine band The Young Step.
“‘Ghost Town’ is definitely about a specific experience living [in St. Augustine],” singer/guitarist Ben Whitson told us about the track, an 80s-evoking pop tune featuring subtly funky guitar licks and ambient synths. “But more generally I’d say it’s about living through a painful part of your life and learning to find the joy wherever it is to get you through it. St. Augustine offers a lot of metaphors that relate to that idea, such as the hurricanes that have ransacked their way through here the past few years.”
In the video (released just yesterday) for the new track, Whitson along with fellow Young Steppers, husband and wife duo Micah and Lauren Gilliam, drive around their native St. Augustine, looking very stylish, ripping cigs in a vintage convertible.
