CRIMSON APPLE: Somebody Saturday, 22 June 2019 19:26 by madseason
Crimson Apple - Somebody

Made up of four sisters (Colby, Shelby, Carthi and Faith Benson), Crimson Apple has built up quite a buzz over the past year. Following their move from Hawaii to LA, they signed with Amuse Group (Perfume, BABYMETAL, and ONE OK ROCK), have opened for artists like All Time Low, One Republic and Switchfoot and have also earned nominations for Alternative Album of the Year, Most Promising Artist of the Year, and Group of the Year at the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards–Hawaii’s equivalent of the Grammys.

The group has spent the first part of 2019 on the High School Nation Tour while putting out singles from their new EP, Somebody, released last June 7.

Drawing inspiration from pop-driven artists like Paramore, Halsey and Panic! at the Disco, Crimson Apple provides a refreshing entry into the alt-pop genre. Somebody is defined by the dark seductive nature of lead singer, Colby Benson's vocals, backed by a definitive pop-rock edge from her three sisters, Shelby (guitar), Carthi (bass), and Faith (drums).

The bold new EP prominently displays Crimson Apple's unique ability to fuse multiple genres to create their own sound. Somebody was produced by the Benson sisters with help from well-respected industry producers on different songs: Satoru Hiraide worked on Somebody and Who Knows, LYRE (Betty Who) on Can't Get Out Of Bed, Shower, and Sorry Now, Damon Sharpe (Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez) on Who Knows, while Florian Reutter (Christina Aguilera) produced Mr. Maker.

Jukebox The Ghost

Philadelphia-based three-piece rock band Jukebox The Ghost will release its third studio album on June, 12 via Yep Roc Records.

The new record is titled "Safe Travels", was produced by Dan Romer (Jenny Owen Youngs, Ingrid Michaelson, He Is We) and is described by the Washington Post as "rambunctious pop music with the compact melodicism of the Beatles, the ambitious prog sprawl of Yes, and the persistent dance motion of New Order."

The new record features the two singles "Somebody" and "Oh, Emily", released a couple of weeks ago. You can stream both tracks at Jukebox The Ghost's website, where you can also download "Oh, Emily" for free.
