DESCRIPTION

Cotton Candy is Mark Robinson (from the bands UNREST, AIR MIAMI, FLIN FLON) and Evelyn Hurley (BLAST OFF COUNTRY STYLE, HOT PURSUIT). They perform a potpourri of genrés - from indie-pop to electronic-pop to hard rock. They also show off their advertising jingle chops with covers of rare radio and TV commercials.

Mark and Evelyn also run the Teen-Beat label. Brightest Young Things said "Cotton Candy was absolutely the highlight of the night for me."

DESCRIPTION

Teen-Beat's Mark Robinson & Evelyn Hurley have a unique, silly band that concentrates on miniatures. They jump up & sing little 20 second jingles all around Boston, often a capella. Some of the tunes are mid-70s tv breaks for toys or margarine, while others are contemporary commercials for local businesses (and I'm excessively proud to say that Weirdo is one of them). Once in a while they'll also have a tiny tune about something else altogether. Beautiful, crisp vocals, and cheery harmonies, crazy thick echo. When Evelyn says 'It's not nice to fool Mother Nature' and then makes tiny little explosion noises with her mouth, I guarantee you'll be charmed.
- Angela Sawyer, Weirdo Records, January 14, 2013
