Song of the Day: Stawberry Cough – Church Friends (ft. Jordan Jetson)

Taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Deer Park’, CHURCH FRIENDS’ single, ‘Strawberry Cough’ showcases the funky soul side of this four piece Psych Rock/R&B hybrid act’s  kush rock sound, collaborating with hip-hop artist Jordan Jetson. Their first time working with a hip hop artist, Jetson has come out of the same Louisville hip hop scene that birthed national talents Jack Harlow and Bryson Tiller.

A familiar theme to many, ‘Strawberry Cough’ explores the emotional turbulence of being turned down by a partner you thought was into you. The band completed all elements of the tracking, mixing, mastering, and production in their own studio which they have spent the past two years building in the basement of the house they live in together. Mastered using a tape machine, this attempt at an old school sound harkens back to days of bands living together and making music to get through day to day life.

Since formation in 2015, the band has experience steady growth as their music spreads. Known for raucous house shows and quarterly ‘Saturday Services’, the band has been packing out small venues around the city of Louisville. Church Friends have also had the honor of opening up for two time Grammy winner Fantastic Negrito, as well as Kentucky legends Boa.

They’re too good to pass up; check out Chruch Friends’ addictive piece below…

Since their inception in 2017, the Kentucky rockers are rapidly becoming a staple in the indie-rock scene in their hometown and across the Midwest with their irresistible combo of soul music with a real gritty injection of rock ‘n’ roll, bearing the influences of rock heavyweights, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hootie and the Blowfish.

So I invite you to have a listen the single ‘Flames’…and if you hear any other influences, why not have your say below!

Song of the Day: Go Away Just To Stay- Delafaye

Following a whirlwind of success last year, DELAFAYE is back with two brand new singles, ‘These Days’ and ‘Go Away Just To Stay’.

Although ‘These Days’ sees the Kentucky singer/songwriter coming out of his shell with a refreshing/slight uptempo affair (LISTEN HERE), ‘Go Away Just To Stay’ steals the blog’s heart for its authentic and stripped back singer/songwriter approach that’s typically DELAFAYE. His undeniable ability to draw in the listener to hear and FEEL every word is simply magical. So it comes to no surprise that his three EPs, released in 2017, gained over two million streams and led him to perform in just about every venue in his native Louisville, KY and beyond.

Both singles are taken from the self-titled debut album, ‘Delafaye’, set for release at the end of this year, December 2018. For now, it’s time to enter into the compelling world of DELAFAYE – listen to ‘Go Away Just To Stay’
