Guitar-driven electro-rock duo Skyhaven have teamed up with Issues frontman Tyler Carter for the release of their new single “Trouble.” This marks the third track released off the band’s upcoming album DRUGLUST, due on July 31st. “Trouble” follows in the footsteps of the record’s first two singles “U Do” and “43w,” injecting modern pop/EDM with the band’s signature avant-garde guitar work.
“Trouble is one of our favorite tracks on the record,” says guitarist Jake Johnston. “We’re so so proud of this track, and Tyler Carter couldn’t of done a better job on this track. There’s not much more to say except the fact that we are so stoked about this track, the people that we got to work with on it, and we’re even more excited to release it.“
Skyhaven formed in 2015 with the release of their debut EP Liftoff, produced by Polyphia’s Timothy Henson and Scott LePage. The band’s ambient, trance-like music embraces their affinity for pop/R&B while still carrying a torch for mathy guitar licks and nu-prog rhythms. Those same ethereal soundscapes can be found throughout DRUGLUST.
“This being our first full length record is something that we both are so proud of and it’s been such a process to get to where it’s at now,” says Johnston. “We’ve met so many wonderful people along the way, we’ve met so many friends, we even relocated from Minneapolis to Los Angeles halfway through the record. We couldn’t be more excited to share this album with all of you, and we really hope you enjoy our first full length record. We spent a lot of time making sure that this album stands out in the way that we want it to, and specifically stands out from our first release. There’s going to be some who love it and some who hate it, but we’re so excited about this direction as a whole and can’t wait to keep releasing music.”
