The Aubreys, the new band fronted by Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard, have released their new single ‘Loved One’.
The new group, formed just two months after the split of his previous band, Calpurnia—who called it a day after two years together—sees Wolfhard again working with former bandmate Malcom Craig.
The Aubreys will continue to work as a duo and teamed up with producer Lawrence Rothman to record new material. The band’s opening arrived after director Floria Sigismondi recruited The Aubreys to record tracks for the new supernatural horror film The Turning which, incidentally, stars Wolfhard as part of the cast.
“I travel a lot, so Malcolm and I usually send Aubreys music back and forth by iMessage. For ‘Loved One’ we actually recorded in Malcolm’s basement and did the vocals in a friend’s attic in Vancouver,” Wolfhard tells Billboard. “After we sent the tape to our buddy Andrew Humphrey in Chicago to mix, he added some keys and brought in our bubba Cadien Lake James from Twin Peaks for a gnarly solo near the end.”
“We feel close to the Chicago scene,” he added. “We look to them for inspiration and advice all the time. As much as we love them, though, we can’t imagine doing what we do in anything other than a Vancouver state of mind. Like ‘Loved One,’ it embraces our family, friends, and all the music we play and listen to when we are lucky enough to be together at home.”
