New York’s Acrylics Set To Start New Year With New Album


Putting all of their heart and life into their first full-length album, New York duo Acrylics will be releasing Lives and Treasure on January 25, 2011 on Hot Sands Records. 

Joining forces in 2008, Acrylic’s Molly Shea and Jason Klauber first met at Oberlin College where the two quickly started creating their dreamy sound.  They released an EP entitled All of the Fire on Terrible Records giving Shea and Klauber the opportunity to work with producers like Patrick Wimberly of Chairlift, Matt Boynton of Gang Gang Dance and MGMT, and Britt Myers of Yeasayer and Charlift.  The EP quickly garnered a lot of buzz among listeners and critics alike. 

After the release of All of the Fire and sharing the stage with bands like Das Racist, Class Actress and Girls, the two were ready to head back to their Bushwick apartment and finish up their first full length album.  Lives and Treasure is full of tracks rich with layers of meaningful lyrics backed with flowing harmonies and melodic beats.  For Shea and Klauber, the album comes straight from the heart.
