Los Angeles-based Cones – a.k.a brothers Jonathan and Michael Rosen – recently announced their debut album Pictures of Pictures, and today they share a new track off the record entitled “Seeing Triple.” Jonathan–who hand-draws animated music videos for Cones as well as Toro Y Moi, Eleanor Friedberger, Delicate Steve, and more–explains the visual inspiration for the song: “‘Seeing Triple’ was inspired by hours spent lying on the floor of my childhood bedroom–lights out and headphones on–with colors swirling around on the ceiling and in my brain. This song is a handful of glow-in-the-dark candy, raining down upon you in a pitch black room. It’s a plea to our inner children to never lose sight of our imaginations–that third realm of vision that exists beyond rationality and above intoxication.” Check out the song now via Clash HERE.

While the Rosens only began making music together a few years ago, through touring with The Fiery Furnaces’ Eleanor Friedberger as both her backing band and members of her opener Icewater, this Cones debut is a long time coming. After releasing a handful of singles, the band went into a friend’s studio to collaborate with a producer for the first time and recorded what they thought would be their first LP. Ultimately, the album did not feel to the brothers like a Cones record, so they returned to their home studio and started from scratch. Now, the album which offers up an intoxicating blend of shimmering psychedelic exploration and muscular pop craftsmanship, will be released this Fall. Pre-order Pictures of Pictures, out September 20th on Dangerbird, HERE.
