Video premiere: Hot Date, “Manic”
Hot Date — the indie pop duo of Nora O’Brien and Eric Carranza — just released an EP called Spaces, and Cobey Rouse shot and edited a video to the first track. “Will you get better?” the chorus asks. Hot Date play the Kitty Cat Klub with Tabah and Jillian Rae on Feb. 24.
