Cafuné - the NYC-based duo of singer/songwriter Sedona Schat and writer/producer Noah Yoo - have announced their signing to Elektra Records and shared an official music video for their breakout hit "Tek It". Directed by Crux Animation Studio, the anime music video for "Tek It" is streaming now on the band's YouTube Channel.
Having amassed 45 million global streams to date, "Tek It" is featured on Cafuné's debut album Running, which was released last July via their own Aurelians Club label. "Tek It" currently sits in the Top 10 on Billboard's "Bubbling Under Hot 100" chart, and recently debuted on the UK's "Official Singles Chart Top 100."
In other recent news, Cafuné have been announced as direct support to CHVRCHES on their upcoming North American headline tour.
Sedona Schat and Noah Yoo have been recording alternative pop songs together as Cafuné since their days as NYU students in the mid-2010s. Self-produced and almost entirely recorded by the duo at their homes, mostly during the pandemic, their debut album Running is a record born in isolation. It peers out at a world that feels like it's on the precipice of disaster, considering what it means to get older, to carve out a future for yourself. It's a labor of the duo's friendship, of doing the work and trying to figure out what the way forward is, even when it seems like there's no end in sight. It's a record of growing old and growing up, of making something you can move to"whether you're alone in a room, in a sweaty club with all of your friends, or driving away to someplace better.
