The Stranger Things’ star Finn Wolfhard didn’t let the breakup of his band Calpurnia stop him from making music. The actor/musician recently returned with some new tracks which he did with his latest project, The Aubreys.
Wolfhard first presented The Aubreys, which also includes ex-Calpurnia drummer Malcolm Craig, back in January when the band debuted their first single “Getting Better (otherwise).” A couple of months later, the group now has an EP Soda & Pie live on all major streaming platforms.
The release consists of three tracks and was influenced by Flaming Lips and Wilco, according to Wolfhard.
“We wanted to mix the craziness and catchiness of Flaming Lips with the earnestness of Wilco when we were writing,” he told NME in a recent interview.
Wolfhard added that the tracks were not recorded in the studio, but in-home settings, giving them a demo feel.
“I travel a lot, so Malcolm and I usually send Aubreys music back and forth by iMessage,” he shared with Billboard. “For ‘Loved One’ we actually recorded in Malcolm’s basement and did the vocals in a friend’s attic in Vancouver.”
