Announcing the debut EP from Boston-based electronic pop duo CONFESSIONS

:: “Your Girl” released digitally and on 12-inch vinyl off Vanya Records on Tuesday, July 23, 2013

:: Record release party and inaugural live performance at the Pill, Great Scott in Allston, on Friday, July 26, 2013

Summer flings take shape in many ways, and aren’t just limited to one-on-one love affairs. They can involve hidden getaway destinations, a burning personal desire, or simply your new favorite band sound-tracking all your life’s impulsive moves. Summer is a magical, care-free time of beach mornings, afternoon bliss in the city, and midnight bonfires, and the middle of Summer 2013 finds the release of “Your Girl,” the debut EP from Boston electronic pop duo CONFESSIONS.

Comprised of vocalist/keyboardist Amanda Dellevigne (Night Fruit) and drummer/producer Alex Garcia-Rivera (American Nightmare/Cold Cave), Confessions feature two veterans of the Boston music scene coming together to create a warm sound of synthesized dream-pop and infectiously melodic electronic pop. Klangfuld of Denmark called the demo cut of first single “I’ll Always Be Your Girl” a “laid back declaration of eternal devotion with a cool straightforward charm.”

Despite its electronic nature, the “Your Girl” EP was recorded 100-percent analog at Mystic Valley Recording Studio, without the use of digital editing, auto-tune, Beat Detective, or other robotic devices. There are no samples, drum loops or even razor edits — everything is played by the human hands of Confessions, often as one take through the entire song.

“Your Girl” drops Tuesday, July 23, 2013 off Vanya Records [VAN006], and is released both digitally and on limited-edition 12-inch vinyl. The EP includes four tracks: “I’ll Always Be Your Girl,” “Wonder,” “Confidence,” and “Daydream.”

The band’s record release party arrives a few days later, at Boston’s longest-running indie dance party, The Pill, at Great Scott in Allston, on Friday, July 26.

Pre-order is available now through Vanya Records’ Bandcamp (digital) and Big Cartel (vinyl) pages, and “I’ll Always Be Your Girl” can be streamed via  Soundcloud and YouTube.

Track Listing:

1. I’ll Always Be Your Girl

2. Wonder

3. Confidence

4. Daydream
