Today’s song is “Die Young” by Bon Bon Vivant. The New Orleans, Louisiana based group is comprised of Abigail Cosio (guitar/lead vocals), Jeremy Kelley (saxophone), Jason Jurzak (sousaphone), Cory Tramontelli (upright bass), Ry D’Antonio (drums), Mike Rocha (trumpet), Ido Meshulam (trombone), and Glori Cosio (backing vocals).
According to Abigail Cosio in an interview on American Songwriter, the song was inspired by New Orlean’s sense of agelessness and living life to the fullest. “Here we do what we want. Age is a concept of mind in a lot of ways. New Orleans approaches all things differently, and aging is no exception. We drink and we dance at any stage or circumstance of life.”
Inspired by the music of New Orleans it’s a rowdy dance number that will brighten your day.
The combination of high energy guitars, bass, and tambourines makes for an infectious and joyful track. With just a few notes you will be whisked into its uplifting sounds. The infusion of brass sounds gives it a sick ska feel.
The track is off the band’s upcoming album Dancing In the Dark which is out December 4th.
