Want to get away from the Christmas holiday music and hear something new before 2019 ends?
The Sarandons was previous posted back in November.
The Toronto band just dropped their self-titled EP today.
The 6 track EP is filled with indie roots rock with some added grooviness to their music.
About the EP:
Damian Coleman on vocals & bass), Edmund Cummings on vocals & keys, Craig Keeney on lead guitar, Phil Skot on drums and Dave Suchon on vocals & guitar create, through a common creative process, nostalgic yet evocative atmospheres that only a perfect interweaving of melodies and lyrics are able to generate. In their words: a “plush roots-rock impressionistic post-twang” sound delivering “melodic laddish beer-soaked holler ballads”.
A brand new experience carefully built by the band to gift the fans with an “enriched and adorned” selection of six captivating pieces. From the strongly instrumental ballad ‘Stormy Endings’, that braces its intense lyrics with a soft guitar, sliding into the country-inspired atmosphere of ‘Continental Divide’, where an obliging (to the me lody) piano seems to rise from an old Western movie’s soundtrack, this EP carries on that catchy flavor of its first single ‘Worse or For Better’.
Overall if you are into upbeat roots groove rock, then you should check it out.
- Worse or For Better
- Continental Divide
- Stormy Endings
Feeling in a Friday rock mood?
Today the Toronto’s The Sarandons released their music video for Worse or For Better.
The band consists of Damian Coleman (vocals, bass), Edmund Cummings (vocals, keys), Craig Keeney (lead guitar), Phil Skot (drums) and Dave Suchon (vocals, guitar).
Worst or for Better is taken from their upcoming self-titled EP, which comes out on November 30th.
About the song:
A scratchy and simultaneously smooth guitar opens and leads the melody of this piece that carries that certain old times’ echo, when the music was simply meant to become a sort of life soundtrack to be heard on vinyl records and old stereos.
The catchy chorus channels the deep yet almost relieving reflection toward a sense of resignation conducted throughout the whole track and expressed both through the lyrics guitar riffs.
Comes very easy to imagine yourself figuratively and metaphorically “on the road”, whether the pathway is truly asphalted or just an inner one.
Check out the music video.
