Brandon Cocard is a true artist. Whether throwing down massive one-footers, sessioning rails, or slaying backcountry booters, he never ceases to impress. Yet his creativity transcends the snow, as the same passion and commitment that define his riding fuel his music. This season, he’s been channeling both his snowboarding and music into a fresh project,Test Pressing. This four-part web series pairs Brandon and his friends riding throughout the globe with an original soundtrack of his music. Each month, Brandon’s dropping a new edit and track that will ultimately be compiled into a video part and EP at the end of the year.
In this episode, Brandon heads to Japan with fellow SHRED. and CAPiTA team rider Kevin Backstrom and a crew of friends that includes Kazu Kokubo and Keisuke Yoshida.
