The Submarines

In Music on February 16, 2009 at 9:44 am

The Submarines played Wednesday night the 11th at the Bell House.  John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard came together through friends and blossomed into a romance (how appropriate for the season).  But as many relationships do, theirs ended.  While broken up they continued to record and write songs and realized that their music was all about each other and the agony over the breakup.  These songs became their first album back in 2006, Declare A New State.

Now the couple is back together, married and making music that indie lovers are eager to support and listen to.  Their songs have been featured on major TV shows such as Nip/Tuck, Grey’s Anatomy, and Gossip Girl.  Weeds also had them record a cover of their theme song, “little boxes”.  Their second full length album, Honeysuckle Weeks, was released May of 2008 through the Canadian label Nettwerk.  This prime time indie pop album has gained interest from more than Television.  The film Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist includes “Xavia” on their soundtrack album.  Apple is using “You, Me and the Bourgeoisie” for their worldwide iPhone 3G commericals.

Complimenting of each other, they are.  In a world where only half of marriages survive, we can only hope that a couple who makes music together, as charming as they do, stays together.
