Video: Cathedrals – “Unbound”

Check out the video for Cathedrals’ “Unbound” which is a collaboration between the band, Maria Kochetkova who is the principal ballerina in the San Francisco ballet and The Sugar Cubes light sculpture (see piece on Discovery Channel). “Unbound” was directed by Sam Pressman and the cinematographer Isaac Bauman (John Legend, Sam Smith, Drake, The Presets and Blood Orange).

 “The intimacy of the lovers is the ground, the base emotion of the song – the light cubes are the rhythm, continuous in every shot of the video they remind that everyone herein is coexisting even if we so often feel separate – Maria is the spirit, up and down, dancing our worlds together – and Cathedrals are our storytellers mirroring the struggle of the lovers to find each other. ” – director Sam Pressman in FADER

Later this month, the San Francisco duo will play their first ever East Coast show at Neon Gold’s New Shapes CMJ showcase on October 23rd. Don’t miss the band live — information HERE.

Listen: Cathedrals – “In The Dark”

Cathedrals

 

“…an enigmatic, R&B-infused gem that features Jenkins and Hwin’s haunting vocals. The dichotomy of dark and light within the music makes for a catching, gorgeous track. – Interview Magazine

“…post-Aaliyah mood-making, pulsating bass, gorgeous harmonies, and XX-like guitar-play.” – SPIN Magazine

“…transitioning from psychedelic, distorted riffs to angelic whispers with ease.” – Indie Shuffle

Cathedrals, the San Francisco duo comprised of Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin released their self-titled debut EP on Monday. You can hear the full EP HERE, including a Spotify exclusive acoustic version of “Want My Love”.

“Want My Love” marked Cathedrals’ first single with esteemed New York pop impresarios Neon Gold Records. Looking set to follow in the illustrious footsteps Neon Gold acts before them (Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Gotye, et. al), Cathedrals fit beautifully amongst the backdrop of the label’s more recent output (HAIM, Wet) and label founder Lizzy Plapinger’s own rising outfit, MS MR.
