Southern California Ska/Rock/Reggae/Pop-Punk Band HALF PAST TWO Debuts Irresistibly Upbeat New Single X Video “Scratched CD”

Fresh off an appearance at last weekend’s Brew Ska Ska Festival, where they played alongside Less Than Jake, Hepcat, Mustard Plug, and more, rising Southern California ska band Half Past Two have released an irresistibly upbeat new single titled “Scratched CD.”

Vocalist Tara Hahn says, “Writing Scratched CD has been a laugh, and compared to how we have written together in the past, we were meeting sporadically, or in smaller groups, or writing over the phone, or even finding surprise changes in Google Drive. The song is about predictability and the limits of your sanity, haha, but also it’s about a scratched CD. I hope people remember what those are. The video was the dream of (director) Chris Graue. He said, ‘Make me a big CD that someone’s face can fit in the middle,’ and because the concept was so extremely nonsensical, we knew we needed a ska celebrity like Vince Walker of Suburban Legends to make the CD come to life. We’ve all had a lot of fun with Scratched CD; this song really compliments the rest of the songs on our upcoming album on Pay Attention Records available October 29th.”
