Their debut album 'Eat Their Own' was never intended for commercial release. Recorded with Vincent Cacchione's home recording equipment, this Brooklyn band experimented with beats and sounds in their downtime. Cacchione, who wrote the music, was dealing with some pretty heavy personal shit at the time, and used these sessions to work through his complicated emotions.
Probably because of this, the album sounds unfinished as a whole. But the song 'Piles of $$$' has a dope R&B influence, and takes these cats out of their cage and onto my radar.
The first track on their album, 'Teenagers in a Heat' is a sexy little ballad about feeling nostalgic for those blissful teenage love affairs.
This next video will give you an idea of their range. 'Teflon Heart' is more of a pop song and you can watch them perform it live at this intimate NY venue.
Justine Freeman has an ear for music and an eye for style. Her father is a musician who started playing as a teenager with Jim Morrison and later toured around Europe with his band for 8 years. Needless to say, she heard a lot of rock growing up, (and not nearly enough disco!) Justine also spent time with her grandmother listening to experimental, minimalist music by composers such as La Monte Young and Phillip Glass. This has helped to shape her appreciation for emerging artists and she continues to scour the music scene for current releases that she finds noteworthy.
