Cruiser’s humble beginnings can be traced to 2012 in a Philadelphia bedroom as the solo recording project of Andy States. Cruiser’s self-titled 6-song EP quickly gathered attention online, and States rapidly assembled a trio of friends to help bring his songs from the bedroom to the stage. With a sensibility for summer-inspired pop, coupled with a knack for crafting hooky melodies, Cruiser’s EP became a staple on many playlists of both fan and critic alike. “Kidnap Me” represents the first song collaboratively written by Cruiser as a cohesive unit. While true to form, “Kidnap Me” is Cruiser evolved; still embracing the summery, feel-good sound of the 2012 material, yet displaying a bit of introspection and newfound contemplative restraint.
