This December, I fell in love with a music duo that has been makin’ me Swoon ever since I listened to their latest EP. Timeflies is a genre-bending talent originally hailing from New York and New Jersey but fully got their start in Boston. In fall 2011, the duo released their first album, The Scotch Tape and out of nowhere, flew to #8 on the overall iTunes chart and peaked at #2 on iTunes pop chart. Vanity Fair even named the duo “musical masterminds”.
Timeflies consists of Rob ‘Rez’ Resnick and Cal Shapiro. Rez majored in music and philosophy in school and got an early start in music production while DJing and playing in various bands. He connected with Cal, a singer and free styler rapper. The rest is musical history with an album, a mixtape and EP under their belts, there’s no telling where these boys are gonna end up in this coming year.
Two weeks ago, I downloaded their EP One Night and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. I thought I would include my favorite stand-out tracks below for you to check out. If you like what you hear, download the EP on iTunes.
