At the top of that list was a company based out of New York, that i discovered on the back of my favorite record of the time, a record which pretty much inspired me to create a band in the first place. It was 'Zoo Psychology' by Ex Models, and the record company was French Kiss Records. A label i became familiar with as i aquired a collection of recordings by Less Savy Fav, another pivotal band for me and alot of my friends from back home, in NZ.
So you can imagine my excitement when we received an email from them back in late 2006 saying that they loved our songs and wanted to know if we had a label in the States yet. It's now been close to 2 years since that initial contact, and i'm extremely excited to now announce that early next year French Kiss Records will be releasing the debut Cut Off Your Hands record 'You and I'!!!!!!!!!!!
...........In the mean time, we've prepared a little 5 track ep that -on release next week- will become our first FKR's release, (incidentally in time for CMJ)
The Ep is titled 'Happy As Can Be' and the track list is as follows:
1.You Still love me (previously unreleased)
2. Happy As Can Be (from 'You and I')
3. Shorelines (previously unreleased)
4. Nostalgia (from 'You and I')
5. An Iron Sleep (previously unreleased)
Digital format of Happy As Can Be ep AVAILABLE NOW!!!! in USA from the following retailers:
Physical format is available from Tueday 21st October.
We're also pretty stoked to be playing at CMJ in New York again from next week, last year was great so we're very much looking forward to the repeat. Here are the dates from the French Kiss site:
Thank you, xo
