cruise-control-cover

Anthony Edwards ’10 and Evan Huggins ’10 recorded a single together called “Cruise Control” and released it on OE Records, the group that also manages Chrome Punch. Anthony is currently working on a solo LP due to release early this summer. “Cruise Control” will soon be aired on college radio stations, but OE Records was kind enough to give Wesleyan a sneak peak.  Check it out here:

  1. Can't tell

    First off this song is amazing!!!!! this is a song you could def hear on the radio. You could see yourself singing it while you are driving. To all those who don’t agree you clearly don’t know good music

    The Dude, I’m sorry, but you’re wrong. The radio wouldn’t even play this. It’s not good even by mainstream standards, it’s just not.

    I think in order to first find success, you need to show that you can create a radio single, and I can imagine hearing this song on the radio. “Put your body on cruise control” is just as well thought up as “kiss me through the phone” or other radio hits. The ability to make a well recorded track that’s radio ready is a clear sign of talent.

    The next step would be to see if radio stations want to play this song, and I would imagine radio stations would love this song.

    Also: Granted the radio doesn’t always play the best music, radio is still the best method of exposure.

    Anthony, I dont know you personally, but do your thing

    To further clarify actually, I actually feel like these dudes have talent and serious potential…but you gotta be yourself to make real music of significance.

    The comments that are actually analyzing this song are on point. These guys understand music, they have the idea down, but the content is no good. Look, i’m not trying to rain on your parade, but I think you guys would do a lot better to be yourself more on the track. This sounds like you were trying to make a hit song, don’t make a hit song, make your song. if you’re good, it’ll be a hit.

    peace.

    Word to the person above me. I think that original post was sarcasm that was too subtle to be noticed. Yeah, this dude has been listening to WAY too much new Kanye. The way the autotune is used here is not at all original to me, and the lyrics sound like they were written by Kid Cudi after 3 days awake smoking opium. Any reference to being a “spaceman” or having a “spaceship”is just cliche at this point. Any halfway decent singer can use this plug-in and do this. The beat is cool though, but I don’t see a song like this having too much replay value in my iTunes. There are good things about the vocalist though, he clearly understands flow and has pretty good delivery. I would encourage this dude to use his talent to make more creative and inspiring music instead of this vacuous ode to Kanye’s penis.

    Yo, whoever the rapper is has a decent flow and some of the lyrics are tight. But “put your body on cruise control” — seriously? The beat is kind of tight too, but it’s held back by the other elements of the song. This just sounds like someone was listening to way too much 808s and Heartbreak. Finally, I have to disagree with poster 1, there isn’t much in the way of originality here. All that said, you guys clearly have a lot of skill, I just wish it was used more productively.

    the way they sing with the autotune is so original and great. and also this is a very well-written and interesting song
