Club Intl is the latest project from NYC musician,John Eatherly. Very much an ensemble collaboration, Club Intl's debut singleCrush is out today. Produced by Johnny Jeweland coming via his label, Italians Do It Better, the Chromatics multi-instrumentalist also directed the accompanying video. Crush is a delicate synth-driven track that recalls both Eatherly and Jewel's other bands, while hinting at new sonic directions.
Eatherly says of the single:
"A crush hits you like an avalanche. An electric storm throwing you towards a new
destiny. The waters are deep & your feet can’t touch the ground. This song
encapsulates that excitement of being forced out of your routine. The wind blows sand
in your eyes...but you can't look away from the sun. Waiting for a signal from the UV
rays, unable to ignore your fate. Embrace the unknown."
The project came to fruition when the East Village basement studio Eatherly records in, had a nightclub built directly on top of it. "All of a sudden there was this nightclub above our clubhouse." Eatherly explains. "The energy from upstairs & seeing hundreds of kids just wilding out every night, started seeping into what we were working on downstairs." Eatherly & longtime collaborator Maxwell Kamins channeled this energy into a new band called, "Club Intl". The collective also features Madeline Follin of New York band Cults. The infectious debut single "Crush" is produced & mixed by Johnny Jewel (Chromatics, Glass Candy) - and released via Italians Do It Better.
