When The Howling Tongues’ new single, “Vivian,” hits music streaming and download services on March 8, listeners can expect anthemic, infectious blues-infused rock to triumph through their speakers.
The Atlanta-based quintet is fronted by lead vocalist Davey Rockett, whose powerful, distinctive voice and wide vocal range drives the bus on “Vivian.” Rockett combines with bandmates Nick Magliochetti (Guitar), Tylor James (Drums), Brandon Witcher (Bass) and Thomas Wainwright (Keys) to sound as tight as ever on this groovy, 3-minute track about the shady antics of a witchy woman.
Keep tabs on The Howling Tongues as they prepare to release “Vivian” and more at the band’s official website.
Philly-based Americana band The Wayside Shakeup released their newest single, “Stay Up,” on Feb. 2. Recorded at Dr. Dog’s former Philadelphia studio, the band adds support from trumpeter Greg Rosen of Swift Technique and Philly roots rocker Reed Kendall of Up The Chain, who produced, engineered and lent backing vocals to the track.
With “Stay Up,” The Wayside Shakeup has released a heartfelt traveler’s ballad that could quite easily serve as the soundtrack to a film montage featuring two long-distance, estranged lovers. Lead singer Rob Volansky’s vocals soulfully project the longing that accompanies being on the road and away from the one you love, while a listener can’t help but feel it on every note played by lead guitarist Chris D’Antonio during his solo around the two-minute mark.
Just before three minutes, the song begins to wrap up with a beautiful, a capella sing-and-clap-along moment before the full band re-enters to close out this expertly-crafted roots rock tune.
Watch the official lyric video for The Wayside Shakeup’s “Stay Up” below, and listen for the track on this Thursday’s edition of QSLehighValley!
