Earlier in the week, Charlotte, North Carolina indie psychedelic rock band Ancient Cities, consisting of Stephen Warwick (Secondhand Stories), Justin Fedor (The New Familiars), Justin Faircloth and James Dulin, released a cover song of the late David Bowie’s “Hang On To Yourself.” The band has been touring and playing notable music festivals like FloydFest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Shakori Hills and Newport Folk since their debut self-titled album was released in July of 2014.

Ancient Cities have been creating a national buzz since the summer, when a chance to record a song at Rubber Tracks studio with Seth Manchester led to the opportunity to perform at the prestigious Newport Folk Festival through a contest sponsored by Converse. They were also featured in a tin-type photo series in Vanity Fair at the festival.

Now the band has been nominated for a $10,000 video contest hosted by the online music publication, Paste Magazine, for their stellar 2013 video “Juice,” which is directed and edited by Charlotte video company Small Creatures.

The deadline to vote for the video is February 1, and you can watch all of the videos in the contest here
