Promises Ltd. – the union of Jeremy Malvin otherwise known as electronic musician Chrome Sparks and Charlie Brand of the band Miniature Tigers – will be releasing their debut self-titled EP on August 26 via tastemaker label Majestic Casual Records.
Promises Ltd. was created over the course of many late night sessions in Jeremy’s Brooklyn Navy Yard studio throughout 2015. Aided by Malvin’s synth heavy, gazey analog productions and Brand’s bittersweet and reflective vocals, Promises Ltd. work toes the line between underground dance music and modern day alternative.
As with the genesis of most bands, the duo came together in the most natural of ways – as friends whose friendship morphs into a musical endeavor. Brand notes that the band “started very organically without much thought going into it other than two friends wanting to write music together. Over the course of a year Jeremy would send me rough instrumental ideas that I would write to. We would then get together at his studio and arrange and further produce the songs together. It naturally worked out to where I was writing lyrics and singing everything and he played all the instruments and manned the controls.”
