TWO CARTOONS REVEAL NEW SINGLE ‘LOST BOYS CLUB’
New Zealand born (but now London-based) duo
Two Cartoons are back once again, with their excellent new single ‘Lost Boys Club‘ – the lead and title track from the forthcoming EP of the same name.
The new single from surf rock/pop duo Two Cartoons – called ‘Lost Boys Club‘ is streaming below. The new single follows ‘Horizon Approaching‘ – a free download that was released last week.
Hailing from Dunedin, New Zealand, surf-rock/pop duo Two Cartoons formed with the initial mindset to harness and channel the feel of summer and their continued love for bands like Best Coast, Wavves and The Drums. Within their first 12 months their debut single ‘Better Coast’ was featured on New Zealand’s CMJ Music USA compilation album, supported by a headlining NZ tour and their debut EP ‘Jelly Tip Lips’, with their second EP ‘Tiny Terrors’ following shortly after. Both were released to critical acclaim, earning four and five star ratings in NZ media. Focusing on simple, stone-age garage rock songwriting mixed with catchy vocals and youthful exuberance, Two Cartoons revelled in their live performances, taking their mix of high energy music and comedic interplay wherever they could, from stages to drunken house parties across the country.
Over the next few months, Two Cartoons were selected to play at NZ’s biggest summer music festival Rhythm & Vines, alongside Tame Impala, The Presets, Kimbra, Mark Ronson and many more. They were also selected to play the NZ Going Global Music Summit, opened for Opossom, Ladyhawke, The Veils, & Courtney Barnett, recorded live footage of a ‘Roundhead Session’ at Neil Finns studio, as well as making an appearance on the hit NZ TV show, ‘7 Days’.
In 2014, Two Cartoons signed to boutique label Far South Records (Dagny / The Chills) and moved to London, where they’ve opened for the likes of The Chills, Ball Park Music, and reunited with Courtney Barnett. Two Cartoons return this year with new EP entitled ‘Lost Boys Club’, with ‘Horizon Approaching’ the first track to be heard from the EP.
Their new single, ‘Lost Boys Club’ harnesses the surf rock vibes of the likes of Wavves, whilst managing to firmly stamp their own authority on the genre, with Isaac and Bradley’s playful, yet excellently executed song-writing shining through.
Now based in London, the duo have got an exciting 2015 ahead of them, with the ‘Lost Boys Club’ EP set for release in mid-March.
