Songs To Get Weird To is the debut EP from The Cabbys available March 23 on Coconut Spaceship Records. The Cabbys bring a wacky, fun-loving attitude to guitar-driven alt rock and pop punk anthems with a sound that brings the nostalgia of early Radiohead, Muse, and Pixies with a dash of aloha, garage folk and experimental flavors.
Founded by OC bred surfer and songwriter Hans Nusslock and joined by cousin Jeanna Fournier (bass and background vocals), Amir Eshraghi (guitars) and Chris Roberts (drums), The Cabbys have been getting crowds moving all over LA and OC since 2019. Their debut EP was recorded and produced by Sejo Navajas at 4th Street Recording Studio (The Neighborhood, Incubus, No Doubt) in Santa Monica, mixed by Andreas Sandnes, and mastered by Grammy Award-Winning engineer John Greenham (Billie Eilish, Bad Suns, LP).
Their first single "SUP Girl (Stand Up Paddle Girl)," a catchy pop-punk tune released last year, received over 100 plays on Amazing Radio and spins from Sting's son Joe Sumner who said "Perfection, 1:45 of just awesomeness."
Grooving bass lines and surfy, reverbed-out guitars are a hallmark on this collection of songs, splashing through catchy alt rock riffs, psychedelic EBow melodies, and haunting harmonies that balance the dark and light.
Songs like "SHORELINE" are a sonic meditation on the respite the ocean gives us from the material world, like a post-surf drive down the coast under the moonlight.
"Dr. Negative" bridges a lil' country and alt rock like Cash and Casablancas, with sunny guy girl harmonies that sail over an infectious shuffle beat, bubbly bass lines and cheerful organs, with lyrics that poke fun at a gloomy encounter with a pessimistic friend on an otherwise bright day in Laguna Beach.
Look out for The Cabbys' debut EP Songs To Get Weird To available everywhere March 23.
