Early Humans unveil new single "Verge" + play The End on 06.21

The chorus is the most memorable part of Nashville-based garage rock quartet Early Humans’ new single “Verge” (streaming below.) Instead of getting boring, the repetition of the phrase “I’m on the verge” is actually electrifying—Hart Williams' vocals increase in power with every line, layering perfectly over the thrashing guitars to create an infectious rhythm (think early Weezer.) A fairly new band who has already seen their fair share of recognition, Early Humans describe the feeling of being “almost there, but not yet.” They will be bringing this energy to The End on June 21st at 8 pm. - Lilly Milman


A Deli Premiere: Sundaes' new single "Alright"

With their new release "Alright," Sundaes lives up to the title of Nashville Artist of the Month. The detached vocals and simple, yet refined lyrics ("My shadow walks with me, he keeps me company / he's alright, too") bear a striking similarity to early work by Lou Reed on albums like VU, although accompanied by a more modern instrumentation (and proper drums!). "Alright" is the final track to be released from the self-titled EP, which is set to come out on Wednesday, June 21st on Bandcamp- Lilly Milman


Keep an eye out for their upcoming EP and listen to “Alright” streaming below. 


Sun Seeker record release at The Blue Room 7.14.17

In a scene known for overproduced and mainstream country music, Nashville-based 4-piece Sun Seeker, with its airy harmonies, minimalistic arrangements, and nostalgic lyrics, is a breath of fresh air. In anticipation of their upcoming EP ‘Biddeford,’ they’ve released the track “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night” as a single. The mellow indie folk track is a laid-back ballad about the topic of growing out of old friends (“Won’t keep me up at night / well, maybe that’s a lie”) that emphasizes the uncertainty of young adulthood without taking itself too seriously. Their record release show will be at The Blue Room at Third Man Records in Nashville on July 14th. - Lilly Milman, photo by Angelina Castillo
