"Song Premiere: Cinema Hearts “I Want You (But I Don’t Need You)”"

"We love this song. Love it. We’re very happy to premiere it. Clean production, bubblegum pop mixed with surf rock. Great band name, great title, great song." - Brightest Young Things


"Listen: Cinema Hearts, 'Daydreaming'"

"...sugar sweet teen pop that cozies up tight with the mellow side of Burger Records' pop-nostalgia-via-DIY catalogue." - Washington City Paper


"Watch: It's a School Dance Kiss-Off in Cinema Hearts' New Music Video"

Take "I Want You (But I Don't Need You)", by Fairfax rock’n’rollers Cinema Hearts, for example. Like the rest of its Feels Like Forever debut, “I Want You” is heavy with post-war pop nostalgia, recalling doo-wop, surf rock, and Phil Spector’s "Wall of Sound." As she kisses-off a non-committal dude, singer-guitarist Caroline Weinroth delivers melodramatic vocals and springy guitar chords that would fit right in at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in Back to the Future. - Washington City Paper

Bio

DREAMY ROCK 'N' ROLL, DOO WOP POP

Haunting harmonies soar over the strumming of electric guitars in Cinema Hearts' lo-fi tribute to the Wall of Sound.

In early 2015, Cinema Hearts transformed from a lonely bedroom recording project into a vibrant band. A year passed and an album, Feels Like Forever, emerged -- an aural tale of waiting forever for good moments to come and wishing that those lovely moments could last forever. Cinema Hearts' lyrics describe life in their hometown of Fairfax, Virginia, the suburban shadow of Washington, DC, while their music is reminiscent of the doo wop singers and surf guitarists from long ago. The sound of Cinema Hearts is wistful, yet feisty, with a pulsing passion for days gone by.

Cinema Hearts' second album, Burned and Burnished, released May 8, 2017, renounces the consuming worry of "forever" and embraces reckless impermanence. Diving into the frustrating heartbreak of infidelity, loss, and rejection, Cinema Hearts takes on new strength with pounding drums, roaring guitar solos, moody bass lines, and a voice that beckons like a siren's call. Expanding upon the retro flair of Feels Like Forever, Burned and Burnished is witty, dramatic, dark, and powerful; acute lyrical observations present a mature and womanly perspective on the possibility that, no matter how hard one hopes and prays, a dream may not materialize as reality. In Burned and Burnished, sorrow becomes a magic mirror that lets one investigate life's true vulnerability.

"Incorporating contemporary elements of lo-fi indie and dream pop, this innovative trio brings a sound that evokes flashes of the Greatest Generation's dance halls and of DIY basement stages." - The Deli Magazine

"One of D.C.’s finest 3-pieces has the potential to become America’s sweethearts." - Brightest Young Things
