Tanlines — singer/guitarist Eric Emm and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Cohen — have teamed up again on a new EP…. of kids’ songs. The EP, released today, is calledPresents and features five classic kids’ songs in Tanlines’ signature synth pop style.
Says Cohen of the release: “Eric and I have both been stay-at-home dads for the last two years. This EP started as a way for us to make something for our kids, but we quickly realized that other kids (and their parents) might enjoy it too. There’s a lot of grown up music that happens to be kid-friendly, but not very much kid music that is grown up-friendly. We worked one day every week while a babysitter watched the kids, and soon enough… Presents was born.”
The EP is being released on the band’s own label, Apparent Records, and is streaming right now on all major services.
