 “The intimacy of the lovers is the ground, the base emotion of the song – the light cubes are the rhythm, continuous in every shot of the video they remind that everyone herein is coexisting even if we so often feel separate – Maria is the spirit, up and down, dancing our worlds together – and Cathedrals are our storytellers mirroring the struggle of the lovers to find each other. " - director Sam Pressman in FADER 

Next month, the San Francisco duo will play their first ever East Coast show at Neon Gold's New Shapes CMJ showcase on October 23rd. Don't miss the band live, please information HERE

Cathedrals, the San Francisco duo comprised of Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin released their self-titled debut EP on Neon Gold Records earlier this month. The self-titled EP is available on transparent black grape 10" vinyl including an MP3 download, order smarturl.it/CathedralsEP .

Last month, Interview Magazine premiered the fourth EP single "OOO AAA" HERE, with an interview that dives into the band's background as a pillar of the San Francisco artist community via Johnny's warehouse gallery, The SUB.

Cathedrals previously revealed "Harlem" HERE and "Unbound" HERE via their soundcloud, and both songs shot to the #1 position on the Hype Machine chart in no time.  

"Want My Love" marked Cathedrals' first single with esteemed New York pop impresarios Neon Gold Records. Looking set to follow in the illustrious footsteps Neon Gold acts before them (Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Gotye, et. al), Cathedrals fit beautifully amongst the backdrop of the label's more recent output (HAIM, Wet) and label founder Lizzy Plapinger's own rising outfit, MS MR.

Recent praise for Cathedrals:
"...an enigmatic, R&B-infused gem that features Jenkins and Hwin's haunting vocals. The dichotomy of dark and light within the music makes for a catching, gorgeous track. - Interview Magazine

"...post-Aaliyah mood-making, pulsating bass, gorgeous harmonies, and XX-like guitar-play." - SPIN Magazine

"...transitioning from psychedelic, distorted riffs to angelic whispers with ease." - Indie Shuffle
