Photo Ops returns with their sophomore offering, ‘Vacation,’ which is out now via Bad Friend Records. Headed by Nashville’s Terry Price, the dream pop project brings life to the deepest questions and concerns with infectious melodies and lush, often-unexpected textures. Price effortlessly weaves hooks and harmonies that force the listener to both sing and think along. The album is available via iTunes and Spotify. To celebrate the release, Photo Ops will play a hometown show at The Basement in Nashville on 2/20 – tickets are available here.
Photo Ops has created the video for the album’s standout track Memories That Glow, and Price said of the song. “I kept having dreams about the past. That’s when you know it’s bad. When it seems like you can make it through the days without thinking about it, and it just pops up in your dreams. The song is a blues about haunted dreams and drinking too much.” The video’s directors Ashley Dudek and Daniel Fry created an interpretation that they say “dips between very bright, lucid thoughts from the past and vague snippets of the present.” You can watch Memories That Glow via YouTube below.
More about Photo Ops? A Nashville native for the past 15 years, Price was formerly a member of Oblio, who toured extensively for years. As he continues to come into his own with Photo Ops, he has shifted from the creation of a live experience to the composition of a pristine and honest record, with songs that both get stuck in your head and bring you to face some of life’s toughest questions. Vacation is a human album that communicates pain but feels like understanding.
