Cross My Heart Hope to Die will change your perceptions of art, and challenge your expectations of music. More than just a multimedia project, Cross My Heart Hope To Die has chosen a new path to create something that is truly an experience. The project transcends all musical boundaries – the music exists as just one part of the bigger picture, ever evolving. The foundation of this art collective rests on the balance of each element: art, visuals, music, and the live experience – each as important and on point as the other.
The sound system is the spark caused by the collision of veteran producer DJ Muggs and fellow producer Andrew Kline. With trajectories launched from different musical backgrounds, they shared a love of a dark, cinematic music. Sean Bonner adds an additional, undefinable piece to this artistic enigma. Sean is a curator, hacker and creative technologist with a history in both the fine art and music worlds, he adds an unpredictable element to an already amorphous group.
Cross My Heart Hope To Die – EP is the first release from Cross My Heart Hope To Die, due out April 2nd on Alpha Pup Records. Alpha Pup’s roster includes Daedelus, Busdriver, and Dibiase and has been described by XLR8R as “absolutely bursting with talent, it seems like a new mind-blowing record appears every few days.” Cross My Heart Hope To Die – EP features four driving, ethereal songs anchored together by Brevi’s sexy and hauntingly beautiful vocals.
The interactive street art side has been manifesting for almost a year. Unsuspecting pedestrians in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, and Vienna have been enjoying, and participating in this project – often without even knowing it. Cross My Heart Hope To Die wants to manipulate the way people find music, to bring back the thrill of discovery. Something sorely needed in a digital age where we are constantly bombarded with aural stimulation.
Upcoming gallery exhibitions and a series of videos shot all over the world make it obvious that Cross My Heart Hope To Die is much more than a simple musical project. If this sounds confusing or vague, that’s not unintentional. The answers are there, you just have to find them. Dig deeper.
