CARY BROTHERSEXCLUSIVELY PREMIERES NEW STUDIO ALBUM BRUISES
TODAY VIA POPMATTERS
April 23, 2018 - Critically acclaimed musician, Cary Brothers, has premiered his first album in 8 years, Bruises, exclusively via Popmatters. PRESS HERE to listen! The album will be available on all DSPs this Friday, April 27th. The full tracklisting can be found below.
The record is a collection of dreamy synth-pop and soaring rock choruses meant for uplift. Bruises is a reflection of Cary's past few years and his path of moving forward from troubling times. "It's about getting beaten down and getting back up again," says Cary. "Mostly the getting up part." Cary has released two singles from Bruises, "Cool City" and most recently"Crush." "Crush" has been generating buzz as it pays homage to 80s Britpop and an ode to what he believes Molly Ringwald would have danced to during The Breakfast Club. The track caught the attention of Jon Cryer (Duckie Dale from the classic John Hughes' film Pretty In Pink) and proclaimed his love for the Molly Ringwald-inspired track following Cary's open letter to Molly. Additionally, the single charted in KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic Top 10, and was KCRW's Top Tune.
Cary first gained critical acclaim with his single "Blue Eyes" from the 2004 Grammy-winning Garden State soundtrack, which was originally on his debut EP, All The Rage. Following the success of "Blue Eyes," Cary went on to release a handful of EPs and two albums, Who You Are(2007) and Under Control (2010). Throughout his career, his music has been synced on multiple hit TV series, such as Grey's Anatomy, ER, Scrubs, One Tree Hill, Smallville, 90210, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, and many more. In addition to the Garden State soundtrack, his songs have appeared on various other popular films including Easy A, Sky High, Feast Of Love, and more. His work has made him one of the most-licensed artists in film and television.
Starting next month, Cary will be traveling overseas to China and Australia for multiple show dates with Joshua Radin and will soon be announcing US tour dates - tour routing is below. Stay tuned for more news on Cary Brothers in the coming weeks.
