[PREMIERE] Small Culture – Small Culture EP

Small Culture EP Album Art

Last month, we had the chance to premiere San Diego-based project Small Culture and the video for the Sigur Ros-inspired “Touslee”. Now, as promised, the band is getting ready to release his self-titled debut EP on June 2, on iTunes. But guess what, you can stream their 5-track EP in exclusivity on HighClouds! If you are fans of The Postal Service, Sylvan Esso or Radiohead, you should definitely check on them!

This project is more than simple music. As Jerik Centeno explained us, it is also about heart and courage.

It is the hardest thing that I have ever worked for in my life, but with the guidance of my favorite teachers/mentors, Chris Hobson and David Cole, and the lyrics of one of my all time favorite bands, Little Hurricane: “If you want something you gotta work for it, work your hands down to the bones.”

“Small Culture EP” was made in collaboration with close friends but also with members of Teen Men, a band that seems to be very important for the artist. The song “Too Late” features Catharine Maloney and Nick Krill, the one who lead The Spinto Band, a “legendary indie band who changed my life when I was in middle school”, as Centeno confessed. No less!

The EP features the previously released “Synthetica” and 4 other tracks that clearly demonstrate the versatility and the creativity of Jerik Centeno, the leader that hides behind Small Culture. You won’t find “Touslee”, which was a project on the side, but you can still watch the video there.
