After releasing one of our Album Picks of 2013 with the debut Hands, New York based septet Superhuman Happiness had us craving for new material. The wait is finally over. They have unveiled a brand new song, ‘Catch A Break’, featuring vocalist Andrea Diaz and produced by Sam Cohen. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more. Now listen to ‘Catch A Break’.
Eva Puyuelo and Lori Scacco, based out of Barcelona and New York, make up Storms. The pair released their debut album, Lay Your Sea Coat Aside, in 2010 and back then, Spanish director Martín Allais took interest in the album’s closing track ‘Para Lole’ and its lyrics “todo es de colores” meaning “everything is colorful”. As the band explains, “the record came out and much time had passed, so we decided to write something new centered around those words – a collaboration with Martín and designer Martin Lorenz in which both video and song were created simultaneously and responded to each other along the way. We thought about rock candy. We thought about Charles & Ray Eames. We thought about turning picnic blankets into galaxies.” ‘Colores (Para Lole Pt. 2)’ is the fruit of this project, a beguiling audio visual effort alluding to Cornelius and Juana Molina. Storms have just released it as a limited edition 7″ single, and it comes backed with a b-side remix of the song ‘Para Lole’ by patten. Now enjoy the video for ‘Colores (Para Lole Pt. 2)’.
