New York-based Imaginary People today release their video for “Gold Coast”. Available now on their self-titled debut, the five-song EP explores veteran songwriter Dylan Von Wagner’s fresh blend of upbeat dance tempos with a splash of Americana. Von Wagner explains about “Gold Coast’s” stop-motion animated video, “Honestly, you can’t find a room to sit in, there’s just no home, and if there is, it’s fantasy. So if you find yourself waiting for an ace to fall into your hand, you best think another way to play your hand!”
Imaginary People formed as a collective of individuals coming from differing backgrounds and assembled in late 2012 by core members Dylan Von Wagner [vocals], Mark Roth [guitar], Justin Repasky [keys], Joe Zdaa [drums], and supplemented in the studio and live by Grant Zubritsky [bass]. In this EP, Imaginary People seek to carve out a niche for themselves with a style designated as Dance Americana.
Recorded with Matt Boynton [MGMT, Kurt Vile] and Kevin McMahon [Titus Andronicus, Real Estate], Imaginary People found the best path to their EP was to bang it out live in a room and to keep things as raw as possible. Complimenting themselves with synth and strings, they round out their EP with a bit of the classic wall of sound and some kinetic big beats.
