DEVIN TAIT’S SYNTHPOP MAGNUM OPUS “ART DAMAGE” NOW AVAILABLE
 – “By My Side” Video Premieres Today – 

West Hollywood, CA – Electro-pop musician Devin Tait today released his second full-length solo album Art Damage and premiered the video for the single By My Side“.  The album seamlessly covers the spectrum from Tait’s 80s electropop influences (Human League, Howard Jones) to his dreamsynth/chillwave inspirations (Chrvches, Neon Indian) and features a bevy of his favorite talents including: LGBT icon Wendy Ho; Rayssa (Demi Lovato, The Voice);  Chris Freeman (Pansy Division); Jordan von Haslow; Kraig Hill (Seamonster Sounds); Scott Anderson (Solar City Music); and his longtime collaborator Bradley Jacobson as co-producer.  Get it now via all major distributors including iTunesSpotifySoundcloudand Bandcamp.

While the song “By My Side” is a direct dedication from Tait to his husband Dylan, the lush music video eloquently expounds the sweet sentiment by flashing back to the era and film stock of a late 80s Halloween night to tell the story of two young men within their group of friends discovering that there may be more joy to be found in removing your mask than in hiding who you are.  The video is the latest directorial effort from Danial J. Smith and production house Ravensview Films.

“I loved the concept so much – the 80s were so formative for me and the video treatment was just so sweet,” said Tait. “We felt no need to insert strife for its own sake or to exploit the darkness that’s in the world today, but rather to wax nostalgic on the exhilaration of finding love, and the safety and security that comes with it.  I tried to write the song as a pure expression of love, and I feel Danial did a an amazing job translating that in the video.”
