2. The Story So Far release new music video

The Story So Far partnered with director Miguel Barbosa to produce a music video for “Light Year.” The video features behind-the-scenes footage from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory “It’s part of NASA’s charter that we share our missions and projects with the widest possible audience. News media is great, but only reaches certain segments of the population,” says Stephanie L. Smith, NASA’s digital and social media supervisor. “Miguel stood out by pitching a music video to help tell the story of the InSight mission to Mars in a fresh and creative way.” The track is taken off the band’s LP, Proper Dose, which is available via Pure Noise Records. The band are headed overseas next month to Japan and Australia before joining Disrupt Festival this summer, and tickets for all dates can be found here. Check out where they’ll be performing below.

10. Hippo Campus release new music video
