"Somebody" is the fantastic new single from Brooklyn trio Jukebox The Ghost. An insanely catchy slice of classic power pop, "Somebody" is taken from the new album Safe Travels released August 13, 2012 via Yep Roc. Check out the accompanying video, filmed in one take on Coney Island NYC.

Following the release of their second album Everything Under the Sun in 2010, Jukebox The Ghost's profile exploded and a relentless tour schedule saw them playing 150 shows a year, headlining the largest venues of their career.
During their rapid rise the band's music was featured in an iPad ad, they played on Letterman and Lollapalooza, and much more.
Safe Travels was recorded in Brooklyn with Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owens Young) producing and engineering.
Their most ambitious album to date, Safe Travels strikes a balance between the peppy piano pop of songs like Oh, Emily and the radio-ready drama of Don't Let Me Fall Behind to more poignant, contemplative songs in the album's second half that represent the band's desire to travel into new sonic territory. This creative shift is best exemplified by Dead, Adulthood, Ghosts in Empty Houses, and The Spiritual - songs that deal with death and mortality head on, with an immediacy that was masked on previous albums.
Jukebox The Ghost are pianist Ben Thornewill, guitarist Tommy Siegel and drummer Jesse Kristin.
