Cary Brothers’ new single “Crush” has Already picked up initial early play on KCRW and KEXP and is an instant habit-former inspired by the 80s—an ode to what he imagines Molly Ringwald would’ve danced to in the classic film The Breakfast Club!
“I was always pegged as a singer/songwriter because I’m the one guy writing songs, but my heroes were artists like The Cure and Peter Gabriel, who wrote in huge, melodic, romantic sonic landscapes. I was tired of feeling confined to a genre, so I finally made a record that reflects the music that has always inspired me. After some tough years personally, I needed to be inspired again. I needed to move forward.”—Cary Brothers (on “Crush”)
“Crush” is the new single from Cary Brothers’ newly released “Bruises” and is his first full length in 8 years. “It’s about getting beaten down and getting back up again. Mostly the getting up part,” says Cary.
Cary Brothers 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 Are You” (2007) and “Under Control” (2010). Throughout his career his music has appeared in multiple hit TV series such as Grey’s Anatomy, ER, Scrubs, One Tree Hill, Smallville, 90210, The Vampire Diaries and more. His work has made him one of the most-licensed artists in film and television.
Cary will head to Australia for dates with Joshua Radin next month following up some shows in China, and we should have US dates to announce for you soon (stay tuned)!
