The Wait Is Over – The Banisters Are Back With Another Single

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.


The Banisters Are Here To Offer Your Summer A New Sound, With Their Latest Release

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.
