DeMille Release First Single 'You've Been Found' Off Of Debut Album
DeMille have announced their debut album Go! - set for release on October 26 - and shared its first single, "You've Been Found." A slice of bone-chilling soul pop, the track took shape over several years, blossoming from a high school journal entry chorus melody into the thick, yet laid-back funk that it became in the hands of a full band.
Formed in New York City, DeMille is the slick, soulful brainchild of Rachel Altounian. Returning home after graduating from the music program at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Rachel initially turned to Craigslist to recruit a band. At the suggestion of soon-to-be drummer Daniel Bloch, she began the search for a stronger lineup, piecing together the puzzle through playing shows and reaching out to mutual friends. Miraculously, just as the band crystallized with guitarist Justin Garcia and bassist Andrew Friedman joining the mix, an opportunity to record their debut fell into their laps.
With just five days of studio access, DeMille flew down to St. Augustine, FL to record the album at a blistering pace. Caught between the deserted shoreline and the humid suburban landscape, the sessions flew by blissfully, and the band emerged with a brilliant 11-song collection that perfectly reflects the sheer joy and undeniable musical connection poured into its grooves.
Shifting between simmering lounge pop and tightly arranged neo-soul, "You've Been Found" sets the tone for the album. Go!'s first single is the work of a band in a constant process of reinvention, a wistful odyssey tracing the promise and pitfalls of youth, love, and self-discovery.
Go! races into your heart on October 26th.
