Yours Are The Only Ears shares "You and Bobby" + LP release party on 5.25 at Alphaville

With new album Knock Hard on the way, Susannah Cutler's musical project Yours Are The Only Ears has just unveiled a new single, "You and Bobby". Reflective of Cutler's soft folk style, the production quality builds upon the work she's released over the years; gone are the lo-fi artifacts from 2016's EP friendship porn, making way for clarity in Cutler's mellow guitar and wide-ranging voice, both of which explore the lower notes to drive home the theme of self-preservation and introspection after trauma. The heightened production makes every breath and subtle waver in Cutler's airy voice audible; in there you can hear the layers of emotion which cover every word and note that she sings. "You and Bobby" is the third single off of the upcoming LP, which is titled Knock Hard; the album drops on May 11th, but Cutler will mark the release with a show at Alphaville on May 25th. Listen to "You and Bobby" below. - Will Sisskind

Yours Are the Only Ears brings bittersweet nostalgia to Alphaville on 8.02

Some of the first songs Susannah Cutler ever wrote ended up on her newest EP friendship porn, a nostalgic collection released under the pseudonym Yours Are the Only Ears. Her soft voice, coupled with her minimalistic and concise lyricism, is reminiscent of Gregory and the Hawk—the songwriting on this EP is intimate, mysterious, and (most notably) raw. The EP plays out like a bittersweet daydream, filled with fragments of memories (“I watch / as you climb a tree / sitting patiently / your tireless flame / conquers everything,”) that are conveyed through airy and distant vocals. This EP, which is available in digital and cassette form, cements Yours Are the Only Ears’ spot in the NYC scene—they can be found playing at Alphaville on August 2nd. Until then, listen to the EP, streaming below. - Lilly Milman, photograph by Julia Leiby 

Brooklyn folk duo yours are the only ears plays Palisades on 3.18

On New Year’s Eve 2014, Brooklyn folk project yours are the only ears (aka Susannah Cutler and JongMin Lin) shared the intimately hushed “fire in my eyes” (streaming below). A lovelorn request for company from a bruised soul, the drum-clasped track doesn’t just showcase Cutler’s striking poetic ability to speak volumes with just a single phrase, but quietly conveys the precious calm that a lullaby such as this can provide. Yours are the only ears plays at Palisades on March 18 as part of their forthcoming mini-tour. More details can be found on the band's Facebook page. – Zach Weg
