Listen: Wolf Gang – “Lay Your Love Down”

Wolf Gang

Wolf Gang release their new single “Lay Your Love Down” today on Cherrytree Records. Initially formed as a solo project by London musician Max McElligott, Wolf Gang has since evolved into a full-on collaborative effort between its four members who also include Gavin Slater, James Wood and Lasse Petersen. The band’s debut album, Suego Faults, produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips) came out in 2011 to critical acclaim and Wolf Gang have quickly cultivated a dedicated and avid fan base through three years of nearly non-stop live performances, including headline tours where the band sold out the historic Troubadour in Los Angeles, support slots with Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, The Killers and most recently Bastille.  Wolf Gang are currently co-headlining the “Cherrytree Presents” Tour, along with label mates Sir Sly and special guests Secret Someones.  Fans who purchase the exclusive “Cherrytree Presents” Tour Bundle will receive a ticket to the show in their city, access to a special meet and greet with the artists, choice of early album pre-order by Sir Sly or Wolf Gang, instant MP3 downloads, and a limited edition Cherrytree tour poster. Please visit www.CherrytreePresents.com for all dates/info. Wolf Gang will release their sophomore album later this fall with British music producer Flood (U2, Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey) who recently won the award for producer of the year at the Brits.

Check ‘Em Out: The Hunts

The Hunts

Cherrytree Records and Interscope Records are pleased to announce that they have signed seven-piece sibling band The Hunts to their roster and have released the group’s major-label debut EP, Life Was Simple. In addition, a video for The Hunts’ current single, “Make This Leap,” premieres today.

The pastoral video for “Make This Leap” was shot in The Hunts’ hometown of Chesapeake, Virginia, with a few moments filmed on the family’s actual property. It was directed by Michelle Peerali, who has collaborated with such artists as The Kills, The Cult, The Black Keys, Pyyramids, and Moby. The idyllic location settings beautifully capture the band’s harmony-laced take on alt-folk that’s both breathtaking and sweetly ethereal.

The Hunts have been playing music together almost their entire lives. Ranging from ages 16 to 24, twin sisters Jenni and Jessi and their five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin, and Jamison all learned to sing and play violin as young kids and spent much of their childhood performing throughout their community. After teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums, The Hunts began experimenting with songwriting and soon brought to life a batch of songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and dreamy innocence.

Lead single “Make This Leap” is a lilting piece of indie- folk built on layered harmonies, intricately textured acoustic instrumentation, and lyrics that gracefully shift from melancholy to triumphant. With Josh and Jenni taking turns as lead vocalist, The Hunts sustain that dynamic throughout Life Was Simple, often turning their shared memories into songs that capture heartache and wonder with a wide-eyed but wistful elegance.

“Growing up the way we did, we had to learn to make do with what we had, so the stories from that time are incredibly special to us,” says Jessi, who explains that all seven members of The Hunts write each song together. “A lot of the time we write about what we remember from being young — the things we went through that have drawn us together and stuck in our hearts and really made us who we are.”

Video: RAC (ft. Matthew Koma) – “Cheap Sunglasses”

Acclaimed remixer/artist RAC (aka André Allen Anjos) releases the video for his new single “Cheap Sunglasses” FT. Matthew Koma . The video reteams RAC with director/producer Michael Dwyer who also shot and produced RAC’s video for his first single “Let Go”.  Shot in Southern California, “Cheap Sunglasses” is the first RAC video to feature his full touring band and featured vocalist Matthew Koma (who along with RAC co-wrote the song which hit the #1 top spot on Hype Machine earlier this summer).

“After working with Michael Dwyer on the “Let Go” music video, it was really great to get in front of the camera again for “Cheap Sunglasses.”  We had a blast and I got to have the whole band with me” says RAC.

RAC is the mastermind behind some of the most memorable remixes of recent years, giving the world new takes on tracks by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lana Del Rey, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, and many more.  RAC’s remixes have reached #1 on the Hype Machine charts 31 times and his first solo recording, “Hollywood,” featuring Penguin Prison hit #1 on all four Hype Machine charts at once while his tracks have over 25million plays on Soundcloud.  Originally born and raised in Portugal, RAC settled in Portland, Oregon, where he began to forge his unique brand of indie-pop culminating with the release of his debut album Strangers (out now) on Cherrytree Records.  André co-wrote and produced every song on Strangers, which features an impressive array of guests including, Alex Ebert (of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and 2014 Golden Globe winner for Best Original Score) Tegan & Sara, Penguin Prison, Tokyo Police Club, Cherrytree recording artist Matthew Koma, Katie Herzig, along with Bloc Party’s Kele and electro-pop artist  MNDR.  Fresh off his Strangers Live World Tour,  RAC will perform live at Lollapalooza on August 3rd  and upcoming festival dates including Loufest in St. Louis and Life Is beautiful in Las Vegas.
