Brooklyn-based indie quartet Cende will release their debut album #1 Hit Single late next month, and based on their first electrifying cut “Bed” as well as their newest tease “What I Want,” it has now become one of our most anticipated releases of the year. While the former had frontman Cameron Wisch snarling amidst raw, focused instrumentals, the new track has a sort of unintentional vulnerability in comparison, especially with the vocal addition of Frankie Cosmos’ Greta KIine. Her soft, hazy voice seperates itself from Wisch’s timid growls almost instantly, breathing new life in between the wails of strings. The sound swells and deflates periodically throughout the track, then explodes near the close, perhaps highlighting the frustration and complication of relationships.
#1 Hit Single will be released on May 26th.
