Rising alt/pop outfit and coveted production duo Calabasas have shared their new single & video “The Mend,” available to stream now on all DSPs worldwide. The track will be featured on their upcoming EP, due out this spring. “The Mend” is a personal deep dive into a tumultuous relationship, and showcases the band’s versatility by seamlessly incorporating rock & alternative songwriting into their historically hip-hop-leaning sound.
“I wrote this at a tough time in my relationship for the woman I love,” says Watrcup on the song. “It’s a chance to get vulnerable with our fans and let them know that we are all humans and we make mistakes.”
