Bedouin Soundclash frontman Jay Malinowski and Coeur De Pirate (a.k.a. Beatrice Martin) must have gotten along really well when she lent her vocals to Bedouin Soundclash's "Brutal Hearts."
So well, in fact, that they're releasing an EP together as Armistice. The self-titled five-track effort is out Feb. 15 through Bedouin Soundclash's Pirates Blend imprint and Dare To Care Records.
Somewhere along the way, they got the idea to get The Bronx's alter ego, the Mariachi-playing El Bronx, in on the project, which they recorded last summer at Los Angeles' Big Game Lodge. Malinowski and Joby J. Ford (The Bronx) produced the min-album.
The EP's described as "Western spaghetti meets swingjazz and doowop inflected voices." Its first single, "Mission Bells," can be heard here, and the duo shot a video for the track in December that will be released soon.
Armistice don't have any dates to support the EP right now, but who knows — that could change.
You can see Malinowski with Bedouin Soundclash on Jan. 17 at St. Catharines, Ont.'s Barracuda Pretty
