Keeping up with the great series of premieres, we are teaming up ith Denver very own The Wannabes for the release of their uber-catchy, melodic new single “Infidelity,” a track that blends the classic, harmonious 50s Rockability along with the some modern Indie twists.
Singer, Cameron McCurry, on the inspiration behind “Infidelity”:
“Infidelity is a breakup song with rock ‘n’ roll, but one of those breakups where the two of you try and make it super clear that you hate each other and don’t want to be together, but they go out of your way to make you jealous to try and take them back. [It’s] basically about how rock and roll has been flirting with pop and rap, and pretending like it’s happy and moving forward, when in reality it’s more like a rebound relationship.”
The Wannabes are an Alternative/Rock band from Denver, Colorado, and the band consist of Cameron McCurry (Vocals/Guitar), Joe DeSimone (Bass), and Andy Pieratt (Drums). The Wannabes’ music is ever changing through each release because the band uses their strong Alternative, Rock, and Punk foundation and combines it with multitude of different musical genres to create a style of rock music that new and unique. The core of The Wannabes music is to seek to create music with meaning and purpose. The band uses deep messages within their lyrics and accompanies them with catchy instrumentals/melodies is something that sets them apart.
The band formed in October of 2016 when Andy responded to a Craigslist ad that Cameron had put up, looking for other musicians to start a band. The two met up at a local Mexican restaurant, and they connected immediately over their shared passion of wanting to create music with meaning and purpose behind it. It was at this same meeting that Cameron suggested the band name, “The Wannabes”, inspired by this old electric guitar his grandpa had gifted him. From there on, Cameron and Andy started practicing and making music together with various bassists entering and exiting the band for the next year. Then in November of 2017, Cameron met Joe in detention, and he had heard that he played bass, so Cameron asked Joe if he was interested in joining the band. Then, Cameron, Andy, and Joe all met up at the same Mexican restaurant that Cameron and Andy initially met at, and the band was officially complete.
The band was eager to start making music together, so the band spent the Spring of 2018 making their own practice space and studio in a barn on Joe’s property. Once the studio renovations were complete, the band began recording their first album titled, “Goodbye” that released on July 26, 2018. The Wannabes write, record, mix, and master all their own music because the band wants to have total creative control of the way their music sounds. After, the mixed-reception towards their first album because of its rawness and garage-rock sound, the band was eager to improve their studio recordings. In an attempt to better their recordings, The Wannabes released a single called “Ashes” on November 30, 2018. “Ashes” marked a big step forward in terms of production quality for the band, and the release was accompanied by their first music video. However, the band was still not satisfied with the recording quality, and they spent the Winter of 2018 and the Spring of 2019 recording their EP “Insecurities” that is due to release in Summer 2019.
