Casey Malanuk, who brought you the instant ear-pleaser Short Film Season last month, unveils yet more music today with the release of “Apartment,” off an upcoming EP.
“’Apartment’ is about falling in love with the idea of someone rather than them and it’s built around the metaphor of waiting for them to love you back,” he says. The new EP release date is to be determined, but we do know the album’s been in the works since earlier this year when the singer-songwriter was creating Short Film Season. He says, “There are about five songs and counting right now.”
The music for “Apartment” was co-written with Charleston’s Brendon Fitzpatrick, who plans to join Malanuk in L.A., while the lyrics were co-written by Seattle’s Sophie Feldman, who also co-wrote “Forgetting 3” off Short Film Season.
Malanuk, who’s a Grammy Camp veteran and recent Wando High School grad, moved to Los Angeles a couple weeks back to further immerse himself in music and learn more about the industry. In that short time, he’s reconnected with fellow former Grammy Camp-ers of the band Alone Together, who’ve enlisted Malanuk as the producer of their next album. Malanuk says, “I’m really, really excited especially because they are being looked at by some pretty big labels.”
