Today critically acclaimed musician, Cary Brothers, has premiered his new single “Crush” exclusively via Substream. The 80’s inspired track is Cary’s ode to what he imagines Molly Ringwald would’ve danced to in the classic film, The Breakfast Club. CLICK HERE to listen!
“Crush” is the second single from Cary’s forthcoming album titled Bruises, out April 27th – which is his first full-length album in 8 years! “It’s about getting beaten down and getting back up again,” says Cary of the new record. “Mostly the getting up part.” Leaning into his 80’s influences, Brothers’ third studio album is a collection of dreamy synth pop and soaring rock choruses meant for uplift. “I was always pegged as a singer/songwriter because I’m just one guy writing songs, but my heroes were artists like The Cure and Peter Gabriel, who wrote in huge, melodic, romantic sonic landscapes. I was tired of feeling confined to a genre, so I finally made a record that reflects the music that has always inspired me. After some tough years personally, I needed to be inspired again. I needed to move forward.”
Earlier this year, he announced that he will be performing in Australia for multiple show dates with Joshua Radin in May 2018 and will soon be announcing US tour dates. Additionally, Cary just announced that he will be making his way to China for select dates during the month of May – tour routing is below.
