Cathedrals Merge R&Beats With Gorgeous Guitar on ‘Want My Love’
San Francisco duo share their third single ahead of a summer EP
San Francisco enters the nü-R&B game swinging with Cathedrals, a duo comprising Brodie Jenkins (Ghost and Gale) and Johnny Hwin (Blackbird Blackbird). The two share songwriting duties and possess an excellent collective ear for post-Aaliyah mood-making, pulsating bass, gorgeous harmonies, and XX-like guitar-play. They officially release their third single, “Want My Love” via Neon Gold on June 5, but you can stream it right now below. “Just tell me you’re alone / ‘Cause right now I’ve got this yearnin’ deep in my bones,” sings Jenkins in a husky coo before the song bursts wide open in a masterful merging of live instrumentation and electronic production. All of this bodes well for a yet-to-be-titled summer EP. Stay tuned.
