CCERULEANN

Marilyn and Elliott Baker, the brother and sister duo otherwise known as CCERULEANN, have just released their debut self-titled EP on Nov 2nd on Holy Underground’s latest imprint, HUG Records. Earlier this year, the group self-released their first single “Fucking Wind” (the name of which was later changed to the more aptly titled “Future Wind”), and received massive acclaim from music blog juggernauts Hype Machine. The song peaked at number 2 on Hype Machine’s “Popular” chart, garnering much recognition for a group that was merely trying to make an introduction to the music world. “Future Wind” is now one of six tracks that appear on the moody and eloquent CCERULEANN EP, which also features the group’s second single, “Hearts Stop.” The EP was a transatlantic collaboration, and you can feel that distance in some of the haunting, open spaces in their music. But for all that, this is a tight operation, with serene, elegant vocals spiked through with clean, sharp beats and edgy electronics.

Having already opened for acts such as Young Magic and Quilt, the siblings in CCERULEANN are obviously just getting started, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
