O+S, Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, High Up) and Cedric LeMoyne (Remy Zero), share their new single "Hold You Down." The track is from the band's long awaited sophomore album You Were Once The Sun, Now You're the Moon which will be released this spring on Saddle Creek. Orenda Fink says, "'Hold You Down' is about the impossible task of accepting you are going to lose someone before you actually do. It wonders if love is the thread that weaves our collective fabric- and supposes that once you love someone they are a part of you forever, regardless of if they still inhabit their physical body or not."
O+S released their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album in 2009. The album reflected a mutual love of shoegaze, field recordings and David Lynch soundtracks the pair had cultivated over roughly two decades of friendship, a friendship that could be traced back to a shared coming of age in the Birmingham, AL music scene of the 90’s. Follow up album You Were Once The Sun, Now You're the Moonwas produced by O+S and Jeffrey Cain in Birmingham, Alabama and mixed by Andy LeMaster in Athens, Georgia. It also includes musical contributions from friends Joey Waronker (Atoms For Peace, Beck), Zac Rae (Death Cab For Cutie, Fiona Apple) & David Levita (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill) among others.
More details on You Were Once The Sun, Now You're the Moon will be announced shortly.
