About Origami Crane
Origami Crane's unique brand of indie-pop is playful, flirtatious and packs a punch for a three piece band.
Jake Fine (Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Synthesizer), Noah Wilson (Bass, Synthesizer) and Max McEwen (Percussion) met as students of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After crossing the U.S. multiple times as members of different pop, soul and rock bands the three decided it was their turn to create a band of their own. In the Summer of 2017, they packed a van with all they could fit (mostly music equipment) and drove to their new home in New York City with a vision of what is now Origami Crane.
OC has since performed extensively in New York venues including, The Delancey, Rockwood Music Hall and Pianos and in October, 2017 performed at the festival, Mondo NYC. They recorded their debut singles with grammy nominated Brent Kolatalo (Ariana Grande, Beastie Boys and One Republic) and Arthur Indrikovs (One Direction, Calvin Harris, Florence + The Machine and more).
Their first single, 'Turn Around', was released on August 31, 2018. Logan White of Substream Magazine attested, "Origami Crane have crafted dance pop perfection with 'Turn Around'." Their following singles are expected to be released in late September and October.
July, 2018 marks the end of their first year as a band. In that time they have written an extensive set of original songs that brings together pop, soul and electronic influences, and earned a reputation for making crowds undeniably want to dance and sing along to lyrics both clever and substantive. Their original sound, magnetic comradery and charismatic performances make for an addictive musical experience.
"'Turn Around' is a shining example of what Origami Crane is all about. It’s an exciting pop song... designed to keep you moving and tapping along throughout the entire 3 minute ride... it’s time to get excited for what Origami Crane have in store." (Logan White, Substream Magazine)
