UK indie 4 piece Young Astronaut released a video for the new track Chasing El Dorado. Shot at the roller disco Rollerworld in Colchester, the video is reminiscent of the 90’s – pink roller skates, video games, and neon lights. The track which was produced by Geoff Swan (White Lies, Ed Sheeran, Bastille) comes off their forth-coming album called A Gold Frontier scheduled for April 7th.
Formed by brothers Chris & Pete Boakes, the band has garnered support from BBC and have performed a wide variety of venues in London as well as Beijing, Chengdu and Hong Kong. Check it out!
