EDITORS’ NOTES

Yesterday's garage rock bands have been replaced by today's self-made dorm-room EDM pop stars, with acts like Zedd, Krewella, and now Timeflies proving you don't need big budgets to make huge hits. Anchored by the stratospheric "All the Way"—a galloping big-room banger in the mold of Avicii's "Wake Me Up"—After Hours is the major-label debut of the duo of Rob Resnick and Cal Shapiro, who met as students at Tufts University. Voraciously sampling the current pop landscape, the album features trap-inspired ballads ("Crystal Ball"), One Direction anthems, crunchy acoustic hip-hop ("Monsters"), and plenty of soaring, Katy Perry–channeling pop. Singer/rapper Shapiro is as much at home laying verses over 16 bars as he is belting out his emotions to high heaven ("I Choose You"). Energetic and impossibly catchy, After Hours makes the jump from a college dorm room to a festival main stage look easy.

About Timeflies

The duo Timeflies combines pop songwriting styles with the studio tricks and big sound of EDM. Members Rob Resnick (producer) and Cal Shapiro (vocals) first met while playing in the Ride, a funk band that gigged around Tufts University. They formed Timeflies in 2010, and a year later self-released their debut album, The Scotch Tape (the title a reference to Shapiro's love of drinking). On the Internet, Timeflies Tuesday soon became a regular feature of the band's video-sharing channel, with popular charting hits all getting the unique Timeflies treatment. With subscriptions to the channel climbing at a quick rate, the Island/Def Jam label signed them and released their One Night EP in late 2012. The single "I Choose U" followed in 2013. Additional recording in their transplanted studio home of Los Angeles continued during the rest of the year.

In 2014, Timeflies returned with their sophomore album, After Hours. The album debuted at number eight on Billboard's Top 200 chart, buoyed by the singles "All the Way" and "Somebody Gon Get It," featuring T-Pain. The duo's third full-length album, Just for Fun, appeared in the fall of 2015, and included the singles "Worse Things Than Love" (featuring Natalie La Rose) and "Guilty." The "Once in a While" single arrived in 2016, followed in early 2017 by "Raincoat," a collaborative single featuring Shy Martin. ~ David Jeffries
