This week, Brooklyn-based group Cende (featuring members of Porches and LVL UP) have announced the upcoming release of their debut album #1 Hit Single, and have shared the first peek into their unique sound. “Bed” flawlessly combines both dream pop and emo rock, with muted guitar and rapid drums. Frontman Cameron Wisch’s vocals are raw, visceral, and unhinged, appropriate due to the lyrical narrative of the track, which has the protagonist hesitant to leave the safety of their bed due to the fear of failure. It’s a sentiment all too familiar for most, and the pure honesty in Wisch’s voice mixed with the simplicity of the lyrics make the song that safe little nook in which to find solace, much like its namesake.
#1 Hit Single will be released on May 26th.
