GET HITCHED, RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE:
FROM A NEW ALBUM: ‘STONED WEEKEND’
RELEASED SOMETIME SOON… MAYBE
They used to be a “Brooklyn band”. They got married, moved to the Vermont woods, and built a studio in a two-hundred-year-old barn that they named ‘Freelandia’. They grow marijuana, like country and American indie rock, and they are never going back again.
Appearing from that haze of love and hash with an ounce of creative clarity that’s ripe for public consumption, the couple are pleased to present: “Lemon Trees”
Their debut single, if you want to call it that, is a laid-back, love-lorn, little peach of a song. Or lemon even. Think J Mascis and Hope Sandoval sharing a spliff on a dusky night, waxing lyrical about their shared love of ‘Fables of the Reconstruction’. Or something like that.
You know it’s true what they say. When life gives you lemons, well… do that. “Lemon Trees” is a song from the very beginning of Drug Couple’s journey. It was written as the pair just started getting serious about leaving the city and growing a new life in the sticks. As Miles and Becca clarify:
My life is a soundtrack, i track my life through music, photography is my passion, my escape, my expression. Without both i have pieces missing, thankfully i’m blessed and get to combine both.
Born in Manchester, lived in Australia for 22 years where i was heavily involved in the Australian Music Industry, firstly in bands (Singer) and then managing bands (all original), I moved back to the UK, Wales specifically 10 years ago and married my childhood sweetheart and life is good.
