SKIP TO THE GOOD PART, the digital EP by Tacoma, Washington dream pop duo, HE IS WE, raced up the charts, reaching #8 on iTunes Pop Albums and #42 on the Overall Album chart. It was released yesterday (December 20, 2011) via Universal Republic.
Powered by the undeniable spark of the first single "All About Us" [Featuring OWL CITY], the EP boasts one "good part" after another. On "All About Us", gorgeous harmonies slide across shimmering acoustic guitar and ethereal piano. It's no surprise that the song's video is quickly approaching two million YouTube/VEVO views.
HE IS WE—Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly—melt hearts with warm melodies and even warmer hooks. SKIP TO THE GOOD PART is a fitting follow-up to the group's acclaimed 2010 debut, MY FOREVER, which hit #6 on the Billboard Heat seekers chart.
Fans will be able to experience HE IS WE live when they hit the road with The Cab on January 10, 2012. What's the best way to kick off the New Year? Well, why not SKIP TO THE GOOD PART with HE IS WE.
