If this summer, you want to find something new, something unique and something absolutely mind-blowing then I have the track for you.
Blues, psychedelia and a little bit of punk found themselves in the melting pot when they met the five boys that make up The Banisters. Formed right here in Austin, they have released an EP each year since their conception in 2016 – and 2018 will be no different.
Until that release though, expected in the fall of this year, they’ve graced up with the track ‘Mississippi Queen’ – to keep us going through the summer months, I assume. An almost grungy tune, it juxtaposes the absolute avalanche of summer pop songs that we come to expect this time of year – setting the boys apart.
A relatively slow burner, the track bleeds anticipation with the deep, dark humming of the guitar easing us in for the bluesy vocals that hit. Not something to eat an ice cream to, this song is not seasonal – it’s here to stay, and it’s here to steer you towards their first full-length album once released.
In the meantime, though, check out their Spotify – they’re a force to be reckoned with.
