Cathedrals, the San Francisco duo comprised of Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin reveal their self-titled debut EP via Spotify, one week in advance of the Neon Gold Records’ September 8th release date. You can hear the full EP HERE, including a Spotify exclusive acoustic version of “Want My Love”.  The self-titled EP is available on transparent black grape 10″ vinyl including an MP3 download, preorder HERE.

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” and “Unbound” 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.

“…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
