    MVSCLES

    Los Angeles pop duo MVSCLES aren't exactly brand new. A year ago, they put out two songs and they generated enough attention to catch the interest of a powerful label. “We’re not supposed to say who or give specifics,” Cat, one half of the group, explains. “It’s part of the terms of being free with the rights to our music. Basically, they wanted to add songwriters and producers to our music. When we said no way they shut us out. They also wanted to change our band name. We had an identity crisis for a bit. We spent months having to stay quiet as a band and in the dark with our label. Chad worked as a mover."

    For a year, the duo was stuck in a deal and weren't allowed to release music. "We kept polishing the productions and songs all year," Cat says, "and finally after over a year of being trapped they let us go. We’ve never appreciated the ability to release our music as much as we do now. We feel so thankful.”

    So they're back, and to many, they're brand new. Judging by their playful comeback single "somethin," they'll be getting more label attention in 2014. Hopefully this time it works out better.
