WARREN DUNES – “FISHBOWL” b/w “COOL MOM” is at Top 200 Radio Now!!!

This wonderful Seattle-based band (named after a Michigan landmark) has been pals of mine for a few years now, ever since I was first introduced to lead singer Julia Massey by our mutual friend (and top-tier Band Mom artist), Shenandoah Davis. I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally get to work a release of Julia’s. This two-track single release is in advance of an album that will be coming out, EVENTUALLY, but not until at least Spring 2021, so for now think of this one as a simple standalone release consisting of two songs (not an album teaser per se).

This band is so great. It’s tropicalia- or even reggae-influenced indie rock, uplifting carefree stuff with a real original spirit. At points it’s almost surfy lady-fronted pop a la Best Coast; at other times its world-rhythms-influenced mathy rock reminds me of a band like MuteMath; their infectious joy (and the fact that the band contains a gleefully happy romantic couple) is even reminiscent of Matt and Kim. You’re gonna love it!!

Also fyi, this band is available for interviews if you’d like to have them call in to talk to you! Just hit me up and I’ll connect you!

Slinking Caribbean funk-pop with big choruses and groovy rhythms.” – Under the Radar

Currently residing in the always-balmy Pacific Northwest, brothers Jared and Dominic Cortese spent their youth running through the shifting sands of Warren Dunes State Park in Southwest Michigan. In Warren Dunes, their Seattle-based band fronted by Julia Massey, they chart new realms of musical fantasy with contagious joy.

Post-modern beach music, Warren Dunes weaves threads of indie pop, art-rock, psych, and Tropicalia into a complex yet easy-going whole. Self-assured yet free of bombast, their debut EP Welcome To Warren Dunes (2019) is an art-pop dreamscape of unapologetic fun. This is a record of nuance and bubbling ornament, where bold swaths of melodic primary color burst into neon-flecked clouds of sonic glitter as Massey’s arresting, crystalline voice soars overhead.

Their forthcoming single “Fishbowl”, and its accompanying meditative video, serves as a reminder of the value in recognizing our shared humanity. In 2015 and 2016, there were a handful of experiments conducted where strangers were asked to sit and silently share eye contact with one another for 4 minutes. What they discovered was that this simple act of looking into one another’s eyes for a short time created a “deep and meaningful connection.” “Fishbowl” is an homage to this experiment; it illustrates what happens when we truly take time, and not much time at all, to meet people where they are in the present moment.

Since the release of Welcome To Warren Dunes, the band has toured nationally, performed an in-studio session at venerable bastion of independent music KEXP (who lauded the band’s “psych-tinged indie-pop, shimmering guitars, bouncy rhythms and soaring hooks”), and released a wild video for EP standout “Crosstown Villain”. Instantly recognizable, the music of Warren Dunes slides seamlessly from delicate post-punk explorations to anthemic, sing-along pop built on a foundation of arena-worthy choruses.

Based on the belief that we can all be #smallbutmighty, Warren Dunes donates proceeds from live performances to a variety of charitable organizations. For more information, please visit: www.warrendunesband.com/beneficiaries
