(Feb. 6, 2017 – Toronto, CA) – Multi-platinum songwriting, production, and remix team Captain Cuts share the music video for their breakout debut single “Love Like We Used To” [feat. Nateur]. http://smarturl.it/SpotifyCaptainCuts
In the visual, the boys—Ben Berger, Ryan McMahon, and Ryan Rabin (drummer & producer, Grouplove)—take a check for a ton of cash during a “record label” meeting to shoot “the video we all want to see.” What ensues is every big budget music video cliché gone totally wild. Captain Cuts go from doling out cash on a golf course and crashing a women’s yoga class to kicking it with a baby leopard and throwing the ultimate Hollywood Hills pool party complete with a gigantic floating pizza. Co-starring a butler grinding dollar bills with a cheese grater and Jax the dog dressed as the Pope, “Love Like We Used To” perfectly complements the song’s soaring spirit and ecstatic energy. It’s the video we all want to see and so much more.
“Love Like We Used To” properly introduced the group’s patented “Retro-Future Pop.” Entertaiment Weekly called it one of the “100 Best Songs of 2016,” proclaiming, “Good luck trying to sit still.” Idolator described it as “an unashamedly romantic and radio-friendly earworm,” and Fuse dubbed it, “a major tune.” It’s already amassed over 6 million cumulative streams on Spotify so far.
Right now, Captain Cuts are readying more new music for release very soon. Enjoy “Love Like We Used To” now!
It’s very possible you’ve already sung along to a Captain Cuts song. Since their 2010 formation, the award-winning multiplatinum-certified songwriting, production, and remix team has left an indelible mark on pop music. The lifelong friends and Los Angeles natives co-wrote the inescapable triple-platinum, “Shut Up and Dance” with Walk The Moon and wrote and produced Grouplove’s platinum “Tongue Tied,” Halsey’s “Roman Holiday,” Tove Lo’s “Crave,” Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You,” and more as well as songs for Jennifer Lopez, Tegan and Sara, and many others. They’ve also done official remixes for the likes of Britney Spears, Imagine Dragons, and Ellie Goulding, to name a few. The trio broke genre barriers, mashing up turn-of-the-century emo and rock staples from Blink-182, Paramore, and Say Anything with current pop hits from Fetty Wap, Selena Gomez, and Drake on the 2015 mixtape If You’re Listening It’s Never Too Late and earning praise from Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, Billboard, and Alternative Press, along the way. After a meeting with the Epic Records A&R team, L.A. Reid heard “Love Like We Used To” and personally signed them as artists, kicking off their next evolution.
