Standards Debuts New Single, ‘Smile’, Video; Announces New Live Dates

May 20 — Independent rock duo Standards premiered its latest single and video this week.

The duo — Marcos Mena and Cam Mitchell — unveiled its new instrumental single, ‘Smile‘ and its video Friday. It is not yet known if the song will feature in the band’s forthcoming album, Fruit Town, which is scheduled for release July 22 through Wax Bodega.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Smile’ is certain to put a smile on listeners’ faces. That is due to its light, bouncy pop rock style approach and sound. The audio effects used within the song add even more to its impact in a positive fashion. Audiences could go so far as to argue that there is a subtle comparison to works from Owl City.

The song’s video features Mena and Mitchell performing their new single in an apartment setting. Various camera angles and effects are used to help heighten the energy in the song’s arrangement and make for even more engagement and entertainment.

Mena said of the video that the treatment was meant to reflect “the energy of a live show with the minimalistic aesthetic that Standards has come to be known for.”

In other news, Standards has announced a tour in support of its new album. The tour is scheduled to launch July 21 in San Diego, CA and to run through Aug. 24 in Los Angeles, CA. The tour also features stops in cities, such as Houston, TX; New Orleans, LA and New Haven, CT.

The tour’s schedule is noted below. Tickets are available here.
