Hooray For Earth Proper Reissue Coming in June
Originally only digitally available as a 5-song EP through the exclusive eMusic Selects program, Dovecote's reissue will be available on CD, special clear vinyl, and digitally and sees the addition of sixth track, "Rolling/Nectarine," which features Jessica and Cristi Jo Zambri of Zambri.
"We met them for beers, and based on our mutual love of Enya and flourescent-colored Ibanez guitars, we quickly decided Dovecote Records would be the best label to release our EP," confesses band leader Noel Heroux of the signing.
Hooray For Earth formed in Boston, MA in 2005 and soon after self-released their rock-leaning eponymous debut album in 2006. When band leader Noel Heroux moved to New York City after the release of their Cellphone EP (Dopamine) in 2008, the city's bustling energy instantly inspired him to explore his electronic leanings, using a love of Eno, Aphex Twin and Autechre to create his own style of synthesizer processing. The result is an EP that expertly blends crunchy rock with layered electronic pop and countless influences in between. A wash of warm synths coasting under Heroux's languid delivery opens MOMO on single "Surrounded By Your Friends," a combination so inviting it was picked for play on Good Morning America. "Comfortable, Comparable" follows with rollicking keyboards and perky drums, while distorted guitars buzz over heavy-hitting rhythm and 60s-style vocal harmonies on "Form."
