John & Brittany Premiere New Video for “Paper Planes”
Philadelphia, PA – June 4, 2013 – Philadelphia’s most unique songwriting duo, John & Brittany, have premiered their video for hit track “Paper Planes” off their 2013 album, Start Sinning, on ArtisDirect.com on May 30th. John & Brittany tell us, “”Paper Planes” is our first music video, and it’s about our inspirations and aspirations. It’s also a pretty accurate portrayal of the dynamic in John & Brittany; we fight a lot but it’s all for the love of rock n’ roll. The video for “Paper Planes” is just one look into this unique duo’s writing process and imagination as the song takes over reality, one scene at a time!
In less than two years since dropping their debut EP in the summer of 2011, John & Brittany, consisting of John Faye and Brittany Rotondo, have risen from the city’s thriving open mic circuit to become a serious rock act to contend with. The duo has already shared stages with the likes of The Smithereens, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, and Matthew Sweet, in addition to headlining their own shows at venues such as World Cafe Live and the Theatre of the Living Arts.
At the top of 2013, John & Brittany released Start Sinning, a 32-minute musical blitzkrieg that, at its core, is about the discovery, or perhaps re-discovery, of the power of rock n’ roll. Inspired by their mutual love of punk and new wave, as well as songsmiths like Alejandro Escovedo and Jack White, John & Brittany create tunes and chemistry that are unforced and undeniable. Fan-funded with a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $11,000, the album is that rare combination of raw, powerful performance and razor-sharp song craft. When Start Sinning isn’t bringing you directly into John & Brittany’s post-Catholic confessional booth, with songs like “Dirty Little Magazine” and “Woe,” it spins vivid yarns with quirky characters like the strangely philosophical bank robber in”El Gato,” the arms-length “Gas Mask Queen,” who is at once a rock goddess and a rock casualty, and the slick southern grifter in “Mississippi Fred,” a foot-stomping blues rocker. “Zzzoloft” and “Paper Planes” draw on the duo’s joint obsession with 70’s New York, with a touch of Ramones and Lou Reed. The title track off Start Sinning has been featured on Little Steven’s Underground Garage as “Coolest Song in the World,” receiving airplay on Sirius/XM, as well as over 300 stations worldwide on LSUG’s syndicated weekly show.
