On the heels of their self-titled EP, New York-based Imaginary People have announce their upcoming limited edition Scarlett Duvall 7″ available February 18, 2014 on their own imprint Five Five Diamonds. To celebrate the release, Imaginary People are streaming the title track a-side. Singer and creative driver, Dylan Von Wagner explains about the track: “”After a chance meeting at a hotel with a shady Character and a complicated discussion on national security, Imaginary People delved into a few old demos written about espionage.”
Imaginary People formed as a collective of individuals coming from differing backgrounds and assembled in late 2012 by core members Dylan Von Wagner[vocals], Mark Roth[guitar], Justin Repasky[keys], Joe Zdaa[drums], and supplemented in the studio and live by Grant Zubritsky [bass]. Recorded with Matt Boynton[MGMT, Kurt Vile] and Kevin McMahon [Titus Andronicus, Real Estate], Imaginary People found the best path to their sound was to bang it out live in a room and to keep things as raw as possible. Complimenting themselves with synth and strings, they round out their newest tracks with a bit of the classic wall of sound and some kinetic big beats.
