J.R. SLAYER's debut EP, Not Rotten, is full of nostalgia and hopefulness while rocking amidst soaring guitar riffs and melodic indie-punk. One of the EP highlights is "Back When," and today, the band––which also features Jason Klein (Deaf Club) and Ben Walsh (Tigers Jaw)––shares its equally wistful video.

Produced by Will Yip and released on his label Memory Music, Not Rotten sounds as opposite as it can from Votolato's past work; it's clear that the Seattle-born, LA-residing artist is at a new place in his life.

"There's so much bad shit in the world, there’s a lot of bad things happening. But when you fall in love with someone, you have this feeling that all that stuff can disappear momentarily," Cody explains. "Everything goes away but you and this person, and your feelings about them and yourself.”
