The follow up to their cover of Tom Misch’s song, ‘Beautiful Escape’, which was released in September, the new track also features a video shot in-studio, and the clip starts with black and white shots before transitioning into full colour, as the band establish the pace of the song.
Released today November 1 (how the heck is it November already…), ‘Don’t Know What’s Cool Anymore’ is the first album from the Danish sextet since 2012’s ‘Express Non Stop’. And it’s not before time. The album, available on digital download and streaming, CD, and vinyl, comprises 9 tracks of mostly upbeat pop.
Back in the 1990s, The Cry released their first full length album, ‘Beautiful Reasons’. They won over the hearts and minds of a whole generation of skateboarders, who fell in love with them after hearing them in H-Street Skateboards’ video, ‘Hokus Pokus’. From there, they found themselves getting more and more attention, and courted by a major label. But rather than do what most others would do, and sign up their way to fame and fortune, they went completely the opposite way…and vanished.
LA duo Lovers & Poets got their musical start in the lounge of Vietnam’s Saigon Park Hyatt hotel. Shannon Hurley, spent three months at the piano there as she wrote, recorded, and mixed most of the vocals and keys for their debut album. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, band-mate and husband Ben Eisen rounded it all out with bass and additional programming. Their new album and its title track, ‘Sugar High’, is out now.
