After years spent honing their own brand of delicate, dazed indie-pop, Cafuné — the NYC-based duo of Sedona Schat and Noah Yoo — are finally releasing their debut album. Written over several years but completed over the course of the pandemic, Running features two previously-released tracks — “Want Me Out” and “Tek It” — as well as “High”, released today. Diaphanous but clear-eyed in its intentions, “High” grapples with depression from, Schat says, “a place of zen-like acceptance”. It's a carefully and finely composed new piece of Running, one that hints at the evolution evident across the album. Listen to "High" above.
Running is out July 20 on Aurelians Club, the band's own label. Pre-order the record here.
Noah Yoo previously held an editorial position at The FADER.
