Free MP3 Download of "Life Goes On" is available for a limited time at https://thevillas.bandcamp.com.
The video was produced in Austin, Texas and shot by Greenless Studios. According to the band, the theme of the video was intentionally Austin-centric.
"We sort of wanted to capture a lot of what Austin can be, with the song as well as the video," says singer/guitarist Jonathan Berry. "Keep Austin Weird had been commandeered by everyone by now. But there are parts around Austin, especially around the Central part of the city around the school, where you can find yourself conversing with some truly unique but beautifully articulate people. So this video is kind of a celebration of the weird - a trippy love letter to Austin."
"Richard Linklater's movies are actually not far off. We tried to pay tribute the best way we could with a two and a half minute pop song."
Since 2011, The Villas have produced three singles and one EP. Their newest single is entitled "Life Goes On", b/w "Never Had A Morning". It is currently available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Last.fm - as well as on the band's website thevillasmusic.com.
The band has a new single entitled "Natural Selection" debuting in November 2013.
The Villas released "Century of Tries" in Fall 2012 with the help of Reggie O'Farrell (The American Spirit) and Joe LaPorta (Foo Fighters).
The Villas have been featured on various influential blogs such as Large Hearted Boy, You Ain't No Picasso, and Austin's own influential Austin Town Hall. They were chosen as finalists for NYLON Project Aloft Competition in 2012. They have been featured in mix tapes from Birp! to HelloGiggles.
