The Cush have been signed to Ben Harper’s new label Mad Bunny Records for their forthcoming sixth release, Riders in the Stardust Gold, which is set for release in May. Today, they’ve shared a video for “Haters,” the first single from the collection.
Founded by husband and wife Burette and Gabrielle Douglas, this indie rock band is delivering folky, country-tinged sounds on this new single. The accompanying video fits the track perfectly, as its ghostly atmosphere fits aligns with the haunting harmonies in “Haters.”
“The song ‘Haters’ was a long time in the making. I had the melody and chords before I found the right words,” Burette explains. “Everyone has experienced hate of some kind, and it all hurts. There’s been a lot of it going around online and in reality. It can all get to be too much, and you just want to be with someone you love and trust and shut out the noise of the world. It’s also a love song to Gabby for sharing this long musical road with me, and keeping music a part of our lives regardless of success, or lack thereof.”
