The Banisters are back, and my God they were worth the wait.
Spirit charging, electricity sparking, and energy igniting. The Austin-built band bring life to a cavorting wildfire during their playful new single Desert House.
Impatient heat drives this ultra-catchy track, accompanied by a nostalgic beachside twang that catapults you to teen reminiscences of summers gone by. Memories good or bad, Desert House’s peppy rascality refuses to end without leaving you smirking.
Under the surface, the track breathes sore urgency and desperation, yet the distorted guitar strums and boisterous Americana vocals stifle it with mischief.
With punk, blues, and psych-rock influences to thank for their sound, the potent blend conceives a sing-a-long track with too many air guitar solo opportunities to resist. It’s a song that’s best served live, alongside good beer and even better company.
Like Mississippi Queen, Desert House is just another delicious slice of what’s yet to come on their very first full-length album released later this month, with Gasoline Boots and The Matters lending a hand for its release party at Mohawk on November 29th.
Desert House is available to listen to on Soundcloud and Spotify now.
