After signing a new deal with world-renowned independent label Sumerian Records last year, Southern Californian alt-pop trio WEATHERS are back with their second single. ‘ALL CAPS (Ft. John the Ghost’ is taken from the newly announced record Are We Having Fun?, due 5th May via Sumerian.
When asked about the collaborative process for recording ‘ALL CAPS’, WEATHERS frontman Cameron Boyer shares:
“We jumped at the opportunity to work with producer/singer John O’Callaghan (aka John the Ghost). We are big fans and so working together was a trip. After some time soul searching for what this song would sound like, the end result we landed on has a lot of attitude that we didn’t expect to finish with. One of the biggest obstacles was deciding where John would sing. I felt like most projects like this have the featured artist start singing in the second verse. But for me, while it’s a WEATHERS song, I wanted to throw listeners off and start with John’s voice. He’s got such a unique tone and I thought it would draw listeners in right off the bat and make them go “oh shit?” In a good way.”
WEATHERS describes their upcoming release as the next step for the band creatively.
“With our new album, we wanted to not try so hard. Instead we wanted to dig deep from our past and pull from music we listened to growing up. In the end, we got a body of work that’s a little heavier, more raw, and way more emotional and honest than anything we’ve done in the past.”
Sumerian Records’ Senior Vice President Mike Jakubow shares the band’s enthusiasm for the new album: “WEATHERS is on the verge of making major strides in their career. They have written a brand-new record that is deeply introspective, relatable, and exceedingly catchy. The band combines old and new themes and made it entirely their own. The energy in these songs will make a lasting impact on fans.”
Sumerian’s Head of A&R and Executive Operations Nick Ocean (Walters) chimed in saying:
“As an A&R in a crowded music space, it is always the greatest pleasure to partner with a group of artists that feels authentic from the beginning. The new album has many colours, both bright and dark. Their music truly pops from the canvas and they deliver something fresh and nostalgic in a unique way. This is just the beginning for WEATHERS, and we are thrilled to help build upon what they started.”
