Back in March I received a review copy of The Submarine‘s album Honeysuckle Weeks. I really enjoyed it and became a big fan although I was unable to attend their concert (though I was given some tickets to give away on my blog).
They recently hit it big (with Apple fanboys and girls at least) with their song You Me and the Bourgeoisie being featured and sampled in some of the latest iPhone commercials. They’ve also got a few of their tunes on prime time television shows such as Gossip Girl.
The Subs, who are on the Vancouver-based label Nettwerk, are also giving back, having recently launched a partnership with Toms Shoes (the online shoe company I wrote about in my Hanson interview that donates pairs of shoes to children in need across the globe).
They are also taking part in Just Like Heaven, a Cure tribute album that will be released in January 2009, by covering Boys Don’t Cry.
