Exclusive: Listen to Little Hurricane's "OTL," Lead Single from Their Label Debut <i>Same Sun Same Moon</i>

San Diego alt-rock duo Little Hurricane will release their label debut Same Sun Same Moon via Mascot Label Group this spring, and Paste is proud to share its first single “OTL,” which stands for “One True Love”—the duo consists of Anthony “Tone” Catalano and Celeste “C.C.” Spina, married in summer of 2016. The couple met in 2010, and have since attracted media attention for their 2011 debut Homewrecker and their energized live shows. They’ve toured throughout Europe, North America and Australia, and their songs have appeared in everything from Gossip Girl episodes to Taco Bell commercials.

Same Sun Same Moon will be their third full-length studio album, and during the writing process, Tone nearly lost his life by embarking on a “vision quest” without shoes, food or water. The trauma started when Tone and C.C. were recording in their San Diego studio built on Native American lands in the mountains east of the city (like, seriously? Isn’t this the beginning of some C-level new-wave horror film we saw at Sundance?). Midway through the creative process, Tone began to experience some strange symptoms:

I kept hearing frequencies or vibrations that made it impossible for me to work on the album. For days, I had been unable to eat or sleep. Everything I saw seemed symbolic, and I found profound meaning in everything happening. Something called to me to go to the top of the mountain. I had no other response but to listen.

Right. Well, after that, Tone returned at sunrise after 17 hours alone in the mountains with kidney failure, frostbite and injuries so severe that he was unable to walk for a month, and they subsequently had to cancel several shows. As stressful as the whole ordeal was, Tone and C.C. look back on the experience as a positive one. “Tone’s vision quest made me more aware of the energy around us and more connected to him and the universe as a whole,” said C.C. “It also made us realize how deeply in love we are and that we are so much more than just bandmates. We are soulmates.”

You can listen to more about their experiences as newlyweds in Same Sun Same Moon, available on April 14. If the album is half as wild as the story behind its creation, we are in for a ride. See below for the single, album art, tracklist and the duo’s upcoming spring tour dates, plus Paste Cloud video from a 2012 Little Hurricane show.
