Alt-pop duo HE IS WE disagree about how much pressure was on them while they put together their much-anticipated debut album MY FOREVER.
“It wasn’t hard at all,” explains vocalist Rachel Taylor. “We chose the songs that we felt would represent us the best!”
The other half of the duo Trevor Kelly, counters, “Not necessarily. We did have a huge slew of songs, some we were personally attached to more than others, but I think we nailed the ones we absolutely love.”
Judging from the ultimately agreeable, pristine pop of the resulting album, they chose well… VERY well.Slated for digital release on November 23, 2010 via Universal Motown in a partnership with FrameworkNY, the album is the culmination of the last two amazing years in the life of the two friends who met in a music store, wrote a couple of great songs that got them crowned as PureVolume’s #1 Unsigned Artist of 2009, and signed a major label deal – not too bad for these modest kids from the Pacific Northwest.
With over 2.6 million plays and over 160,000 downloads on Purevolume alone, He Is We posted a free download of the Old Demos EP for a limited time as a thank you to their fans, which has received over 50,000 downloads to date.
