The first single from the album “Heaven’s Mayor” by Elrichman, out on Bobo Integral on April 24th.
Elrichman – the project of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Paul Erlichman – is set to release its new album Heaven’s Mayor. Following his work as part of the art-pop duo Goosebump (formally Germaphobes), Erlichman, who also plays in the jangle-pop quartet, Ducks Unlimited, recorded the new album with producer, Alex Gamble (Fucked Up, Alvvays). It’s the first record under the Elrichman moniker since 2014’s Young, Healthy, and Wonderful and finds further contributions from members of Hooded Fang (Jon Pappo), Weaves (Zach Bines) and Twisted Pine (Anh Phung).
Recorded at Toronto’s recently closed studios, The Hive, Heaven’s Mayor looks to meticulously examine how to be honest with oneself in our strange postmodern world. Featuring lavish strings and woodwind arrangements, it’s a versatile sophomore album that allows songs to celebrate their own sonic idiosyncrasies as much as they do their tales of consumption, helplessness and despair.
