Seriously, what can’t Finn Wolfhard do?
The young actor has accomplished more than most 14-year-olds could dream of… actually, make that what most 50-year-olds could dream of. Finn, who plays Mike Wheeler in Stranger Things, is a man of many talents. Not only does he star in one of the biggest TV series’ of the last decade, he also just signed a record deal with Royal Mountain Records for his four-piece band, Calpurnia. You may recognise Royal Mountain Records as the home of musicians like Mac DeMarco, PUP and METZ, among others.
Finn’s band actually formed after Wolfhard met drummer Malcolm Craig on the set of a PUP music video. Their debut EP will be produced by Twin Peaks vocalist Cadien Lake James.
“It is so sweet that we have such a good team at Royal Mountain Records,” said Wolfhard. “I love everyone on it. I’m extremely excited to record our EP with Cadien Lake James. Not only is he in one of my favourite bands of all time, and recorded some of my favourite songs, but he is also the sweetest guy ever. Thanks everyone so much who helped us out along the way, it means the world.”
Do you kinda hope when you click play on the video above that the music isn’t very good? Look, you’re only human. You can only support so much success while you’re still grappling with learning what a chord is.
But I have some bad news for you, my friend. His band is really good. So is his voice. Way to rub it in, Wolfhard.
