They blew us (and pretty much everyone else) away at CMJ in October, and now New York quartet Hooray for Earth are set to blow the speakers off the rest of your houses when they release their debut full-length effort, True Loves, on May 3 via Dovecote Records.

With a sound as boldly Spectorian as it is indefinable, Hooray for Earth is quickly building a reputation on the NYC live scene, and surely True Loves will serve to propel these sonic-surfing maniacs into the stratosphere. If lead singer Noel Heroux has anything to say about it, it will.

“It’s a friendly record. I get more emotionally affected by extremes. I’ve really grabbed onto the positive, uplifting feelings in music that get me super psyched—but that can also come from sounds that are daunting and a little scary…. My task is to recreate what’s stuck in my head in actual audible form, as quickly as possible. I wish I could just plug a cord into my head…I think that’s why the music tends to be a little dense, because I think of all these things at once.”
