Today, the eclectic and prolific artist Chase Cohl has announced the March 19th release of the first installment of her Dear Dear EP. Marking the occasion, Cohl has made the track and Gemma Warren video for lead single “Take It Like A Man” available HERE. Like letters committed to well-worn paper in elegant cursive by hand, the music of Chase Cohl channels a bygone charm and delicate magic. Both the retro-fetishist video and all four-songs on the EP pay homage to ‘60s girl group legends such as The Ronettes, The Shirelles, Darlene Love and The Crystals. The track and video come a week after the debut of BESA, Cohl’s latest fashion endeavor small collection of high-end cashmere headscarves produced in small, ethically-made quantities. The first run sold out in less than 24 hours, and the second batch is available for pre-order HERE. Pre-save Dear Dear: Volume I HERE.
The published poet, songwriter, artist, fashion designer, and Littledoe Accessories creator co-wrote Dear Dear: Volume I with keyboardist/songwriter Barry Goldberg (Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight). Joined by producer Loren Humphrey (The Last Shadow Puppets, Guards, Willowz), Chase discovered Valentine Studios in Los Angeles. A true “time capsule,” it served as the site for seminal recordings by The Beach Boys and Elvis before closing its doors in the late sixties before recently reopening – proving to be perfect for her vintage sound. Other collbarotors on the EP include Tyler Parkford (Mini Mansions), Benji Lysaght (Father John Misty, Beck), Rodrigo Amarante (Little Joy), James Richardson (MGMT), Benjamin Booker, and more.
