New York based THE CABANA KIDS have just launched their second single, “Oh Lorelei,” via My Old Kentucky Blog. The Brooklyn sextet has just released their highly anticipated debut EP, The Birds & The Bees on October 7, via Small Plates Records.
Playing much-talked about shows at venues such as Cake Shop, Pianos’ and Brooklyn Bowl, The Cabana Kids rapidly started to become a fan favorite. With the recent success of their debut single, “Just Let Me Know,” their sunny male-female harmonies has a deep retro feel that you won’t be able to shake. The perfectly blended vocals of founding member Joseph Lee and singer Alena Spanger are laced with infectious and reverb filled guitars, rolling drums and dreamy lyrics.
Songwriter and frontman Joseph Lee says of “Oh Lorelei”: ““Oh Lorelei” is about a girl who has broken hearts. Her name also refers to a cliff/rock of the same name that sits on the Rhine River. According to folklore there was a maiden who sang in the night calling sailors to crash upon her rocky shores. In terms of love, sometimes we know things will end bad, but we’re powerless against the force of attraction.”
