Rob spoke with Brandi Lukas of Going to Hell on Olio.fm about the Dewey Beach Music Conference, “Autumn Leaves”, and our 2015 record Black Feathers. Check it ooooooouuuuuutttttt
The new single is out today! You can find it wherever you like to get your music online: iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, wherever. The is the first single from our upcoming record, Black Feathers, coming in 2015. If you dig the track, please share with it your friends on facebook and twitter. We will love you forever.
And here’s a little info from the press release:
‘”Autumn Leaves” marks a turn away from the sunny nostalgia of the band’s most recent release, The Atlantic Ocean EP. An electro-rock take on a simple minor blues, “Autumn Leaves” revels in its own gritty textures. Breathy vocals, rumbling bass, and blasts of guitar fuzz create a dark, brooding tone that is lightened only by the Latin groove and playful shifts in style.
This new track also showcases an arrangement that is far removed from the verse-chorus-verse structure of much contemporary popular music. “Autumn Leaves” instead follows a blueprint more common to the jazz of the 1940s. It starts off with Lindgren crooning the central melody, veers off into Jason Reynolds’ buzzsaw guitars, and eventually weaves its way through a few more instrumental ideas before coming back to the final vocal refrain.
“Autumn Leaves” is the first single from Revolution, I Love You’s upcoming 2015 record, Black Feathers. The single was released by Monster Entertainment and Redeye USA.’
We could not possibly be more excited to announce that Jeff Ormsby will be joining Revolution, I Love You as our new DRUMMER. Come out and make him feel welcome when he plays his first show with us on August 30 at MilkBoy Philly.
Learn more about Jeff and what led to the change by reading the press release.
We’re really excited to tell everyone that we’ve been back in the studio working on our next record since June. The new record will be called “Black Feathers” and we hope to release it in early 2015. It’s coming along quickly: in the worst case scenario it will be a 6-song EP, in the best case scenario it will be our second full-length album, our first since We Choose to Go to the Moon in 2011.
But 2015 is so far away, right? So we will be releasing the first single from Black Feathers on September 9, a track called “Autumn Leaves”. This song is definitely a shift for us, a dark, grooving sort of thing that meshes together latin percussion (can anyone say “claves”?), rumbling low end, and a monstrously fuzzy guitar sound that J cooked up using who-knows-what.
Maybe “who-knows-what” isn’t the best choice of words, I’m pretty sure J instagrammed his pedal board while he was working on the solo. So anyone who feels like looking for the picture knows EXACTLY what. But that’s beside the point.
THE POINT IS that we’re excited. We can’t wait to share this new music with you and we hope you dig it as much as we do. If you live in Philadelphia, you can hear it a little early by coming out to the release part on August 30 at Milkboy Philly. Also, check out the sweet artwork below.
