Johnny Gates – “Brooklyn Nights”
“Making the video was such an incredible experience. Filming everything in Brooklyn really brought the song to life. So happy we could make that happen. And the team was just awesome. I’ve been in bands forever, and with this being my first solo stint, I was loving the whole ‘crew’ mentality. And this is my first ever video, so it’s just wild to see lyrics turn into visuals.” – Johnny Gates
‘Brooklyn Nights’ contains a relatable storyline, wonderful vocals, and an intimate stripped-backed guitar-driven instrumentation oozing with pop, indie-rock, and Americana elements.
“‘Brooklyn Nights’ is actually the first song that I wrote all by myself. It’s about a girl that I used to go to New York City with when I was younger. We would always stroll around Brooklyn together and dream up stories about our future, about us living together. We pictured it all happening, but it never did. And now, I can’t go back there without thinking about her. So I wrote this song about just that. Connecting a place to a person.” – Johnny Gates
