EP: 5 Songs of Summer - The Cinnamons
They say they began as a bedroom recording project but The Cinnamons have progressed far and beyond messing around in the front room of a house in Castlemilk. This is synth-pop at its finest complete with awesome hooks and catchy melodies, all of which provide the perfect soundtrack to Summer - and that's exactly what The Cinnamons will be providing.
The band will release five singles at various dates throughout Summer 2010 each of which will gradually form the band's next EP, 5 Songs of Summer, set for release in mid August. Interestingly, each song was performed, recorded, mixed and mastered by the band in a bedroom. No fancy studios or expensive sound producers involved in the making of this EP, yet you would never guess otherwise.
Each track will be available as a free download from the band's Bandcamp with the first, Welcome to the Business, available now. Here is a full list of the tracks and their release dates:
June 28th - Welcome to the Business
July 12th - Leave if you want to
July 26th - Where we're Going
August 9th - Soul for Sale
August 16th - Analog Man
I'll be posting reminders each time a new track is released, so don't worry about missing a date.
The end of Summer will see a Cinnamons hosted party and EP launch which, if you're fans of the band, you won't want to miss. So what are you waiting for? Get downloading!
The first of the five singles is available to download now from the bands Bandcamp.
