Interview Magazine Premieres the Music Video for DWNTWN’s “Missing You”
Self-Titled EP Out Now on Jullian Records
“DWNTWN’s influences are varied: everything from Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Beach House, Crystal Castles, and The Carter Family. They put it all together with banjo, folk music, and electro-pop—and do it well.” – Interview Magazine
“Shimmery, ethereal indie/electro-pop in excelsis.” – The Guardian
“We need all the sunshine we can get right now, and DWNTWN has it in spades.” – USA Today’s Pop Candy
“…catchy melancholy pop with twinkling electronics that could be sung by thousands during a festival twilight in the near future.” – RCRD LBL
“…devastatingly affecting indie-pop.” – Buzzbands LA
“We don’t know much about L.A. electro-pop duo DWNTWN besides the fact that we want to hear a lot more music from them.” –– NYLON Magazine
“Easing tension with mellow and drawn-out soundscapes” – Earmilk
“Missing You,” one of the standout tracks from DWNTWN’s self-titled EP, now has a music video and Interview Magazine was the first to premiere it.
Featuring Robert Cepeda’s rustic banjo accompanied by Jamie Leffler’s ethereal vocals and handclaps, the music video perfectly captures the feelings evoked by the emotional track. Written for Leffler’s late grandfather, it conveys both longing and celebration. The video follows Leffler and Cepeda connecting with photos of their departed loved ones.
Leffler explains to Interview, “”It’s a really close one to my heart, and I hope it translates well to other people who have lost someone in their lives.”
To hear “Missing You” and the rest of their critically lauded live show, DWNTWN will be performing in their home base of Los Angeles at The Satellite on May 31, and at Popshop @ The Echoplex with The Knocks and ASTR, on July 3.
