Space Captain Gives Fans A Taste Of Their New Music

Space Captain Gives Fans A Taste Of Their New Music

The “Sycamore” single brings an eagerly awaited taste of new music from Space Captain and an upfront glimpse of their first full album. On this fresh new material the young Brooklyn band channel seemingly disparate genres including R&B, indie, psych rock and jazz into a stirring, progressive proposition laced with stealthily addictive hooks.
“Sycamore” tells a lyrical, folk-flavoured tale of complicated love, the lilting voice of singer and songwriter Maralisa Simmons-Cook melding with heavily effected guitars and synths alongside live and digital beats and brass flourishes. “The story is based on a tumultuous love triangle my dad was thrown into post-college”, she explains; “He told me this story one summer, behind a bar in Brooklyn called Sycamore. It’s a tale of love and betrayal, about trying to win back a lover, and the issues that arose between three best friends”. Order The single now! https://spacecaptainofficial.bandcamp.com/

JORDAN RAKEI READIES NEW RELEASE NERVE PREMIERE + TOUR DATES

Over the summer Jordan Rakei has pleasantly teased fans with music  from his pending CD Wall Flower that is due out 9.22.17.  Earlier he released Sorceress.  The latest song release is entitled Nerve.  You can check it out first here.

When I was writing ’Nerve’, I was really focusing on maintaining a traditional song structure but I wanted to layer it up loads to try to create a wall of sound effect. I love strings so much, so I’m glad that they made it onto the track. As for the guitar, that would be the great input from The Invisible’s frontman and guitarist Dave Okumu who is an absolute beast… I’m very humbled to have him be a part of this tune!”

1. Eye To Eye
2. May
3. Sorceress
