I have been anxiously waiting for new music from this cherub couple for too many months, and today they have given it to us! The EP “Musical Beds Vol 1″ from Seahorses is officially out November 24th, but Justin Huey and Emily Moore have temporarily made 2 of the songs availible for your listening pleasure on their myspace page. I have been hooked on “Tough Luck” since they sent the MP3 to us, featured in Episode 25. Once your thuroughly addicted to those tunes by next week, the pair will be throwing the rest of the EP at you as well.
Where they find the time to write, record AND produce is beyond me. Justin is a full time member of the band Steel Train, who it seems never stops moving. They are currently on a National “Use Your Sole Tour” with Hanson and HelloGoodbye supported by Toms Shoes. Each show is preceeded by a fundraising mile walk with proceeds earned benefiting poverty and AIDS in Africa. A few of the dates have placed fun. and Steel Train in the same city where Jack Antonoff gets to play double duty performing with both bands of which he is a core member. These nights also reunite Emily and Justin, as Emily is a touring member of fun. providing the female vocals, guitar and keys. Music is clearly this duo’s calling and it is so exciting to see their lives filled with it!
If you are a fan of any of the aformentioned bands, or any sweet sounding, toe tapping, stick in your head indie pop music, you will fall in love with Seahorses.
