Like clockwork, when springtime begins to truly settle in, you'll notice writers using the adjective "balmy" much more frequently. Well ... just deal with it, as it's a balmy day in Music City, and local sunshiny indie rockers Echo Group have a balmy new track, with a balmy new video to go along with it. As recently noted by yours truly, E.G. "marries the sun-kissed jangle of West Coast pop with the urbaneness and sophisticated arrangements of East Coast post-punk and rock ’n’ roll."
Well, their brand-new "Gia" has all the breezy guitars and reverb you'd expect from a band that could be described that way. Glance above to see the "Gia" video — directed by the band members themselves — which appears to be more a collection of simple shots and vignettes than a proper narrative arc (not that there's anything wrong with that). Stream the tune below, or download it for free at Echo Group's Bandcamp page. Echo Group will play Local Honey's Spring Fashion Show on Sunday, April 21. Writes the band, "We wrote two songs for the occasion ... We will be performing these songs during the fashion show on Sunday. Wild Cub is also performing."
