Corbu get shimmery with ‘Battles’

The New Yorkers release their debut album ‘Crayon Soul’ later this summer.

New York’s Corbu have shared ‘Battles’ - a shimmery, gold-spangled glimpse of things to come on their debut album ‘Crayon Soul’. Mixed by Dave Fridmann (well known for working production magic with The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala) the record’s out on 5th August.

Inspired by everything from the brilliantly strange cartoon Adventure Time, to sci-fi flick Interstellar, Corbu’s melting pot is a diverse one, and after a quick effotless stir, out pours sleek, viscous pop like latest cut ‘Battles’.

“When we wrote the story for the album, a whole universe opened up for us,” explains the band’s frontman Jonathan Graves. “We referenced it constantly while finishing the songs and mixing them with Dave, and each piece of artwork we made is a snapshot from the ‘movie’ of Crayon Soul.”
