The Cactus Blossoms have built a steady following since their first national release, 2016’s You’re Dreaming by building songs full of tight vocal harmonies and reflecting many of the traditions of the 60s and 70s. The classic-sounding vibe of Cactus Blossoms also attracted the attention of filmmaker David Lynch, who featured them in the 2017 season of Twin Peaks, where they performed their song “Mississippi” at the roadhouse.
Their upcoming album, One Day, is no exception, and will arrive on February 11th, 2022. Their single “Everybody” featuring Jenny Lewis has been released ahead of the album, as well as a visualizer video.
Jack Torrey of The Cactus Blossoms writes about the song:
Have you ever heard the saying “everyone is just doing the best they can”? I wanted to put that idea into a song. It started out as a kind of sad one-sided story, but when I heard it in my head as a back and forth between two people and imagined Jenny singing the lines it became something different. I’m so glad she was up for it, because without her I don’t think it would have the hopefulness that I was looking for.
