TIMEFLIES WILL MAKE YOU “SWOON”
Kevin Arnold and Paul Pfeiffer. Ace and Gary. Tomax. Xamot perhaps? Throughout pop culture history, there have been some dynamic duos and some, well, rather lackluster ones. Nothing against the G.I.Joe twins, but let’s focus on the former. Timeflies are a New York-by-way-of-Boston tandem who are breaking out like zits that once found shelter on Arnold and Pfeiffer’s respective faces.
Cal Shapiro and Rob “Rez” Resnick have been making a steady fame climb since producing music and performing together at Tufts U. They dropped Timeflies’ debut LP in 2011, and put out a few EPS since – the last two of which One Night and Warning Signs – got – to quote a faux Nic Cage – “high praise.” Their new album After Hours dropped April 29, and
follows their previous signature pop stylings which has elements of hip hop, rock, and everything else. There are several surefire hits on the album notably radio hit “I Choose U” and “All The Way,” which was heard in this season’s American Idol and in Kevin Hart’s About Last Night. A week before the album’s release, the dynamic duo filmed an A-Sidessession where they performed a few tracks, and fielded questions like pro athletes. Speaking of which, their “All The Way” video has all-stars like surfer Anastasia Ashley, snowboarder Mark Reininga, and Motocross stud Scotty Stephens in it so naturally they were asked about it. Anyway, watch below.
About A-Sides with Jon Chattman:
Jon Chattman’s music series features celebrities and artists (established or not) from all genres performing a track, and discussing what it means to them. This informal series focuses on the artist making art in a low-threatening, extremely informal (sometime humorous) way. No bells, no whistles – just the music performed in a random, low-key setting followed by an unrehearsed chat. In an industry where everything often gets overblown and over manufactured, Jon strives for a refreshing change.
