Los Angeles brother duo Cones built up a lot of buzz over the last couple of years having slowly dropped some singles here and there. After all the hype, the boys recently announced the release of their debut album entitled Pictures of Pictures out on September 20th via Dangerbird Records. As the release date draws near, a new single called “Laugh of the Party” has found its way to the interwebs. What you’ll find is a truly impressive piece of indie pop music which might remind you of a band like Generationals or even earlier, non sucky Vampire Weekend. It’s a hit. Maybe you should pre-order the new album now?
The brothers Rosen have probably been dreaming of big things since they were kids, and now the duo known as Cones have signed to Dangerbird Records. That news also comes with a purely fun bit of pop to signal their arrival into the big leagues. It almost starts off with this psychedelic leaning electropop, though that quickly moves aside for a silkier pulse that works the groove in from beneath. There’s a smoothed calm to the vocal delivery, particularly in the repeated chorus at the end…definitely adding to the hook factor. More news to come on the brothers in the near future!
The Rosen brothers have previously supported Eleanor Friedberger in her live band,but they’re now focusing on their own project, Cones. It’s the best way to open up a Friday; it’s got a natural spritely attitude lurking beneath the subtle pop structures. Slight electronic pulses and looped drums provide the perfect background for the vocals to softly take a ride in the front of the mix. The emotional hook comes via the chorus where the tones take a slight turn and varying textures are added to flesh the track out. The single is now available via Dangerbird.
