The Currys Announce Sophomore LP West Of Here Out 3/25
First Single “If I Find It” Unleashed w/ PopMatters,
Anchored by the elastic, entwined harmonies that only seem to exist among kin, The Currys have announced their return with their sophomore LP West Of Here, out March 25th, 2016. The follow up to their 2014 debut effort Follow, the latest LP finds brothers Jimmy and Tommy Curry and cousin Galen Curry once again wrapped in their own modern brand of harmony rich Americana. West Of Here showcases each of the family members’ songwriting chops and is a welcome addition to today’s contemporary folk landscape.
True to its title, West Of Here is an album born on the road. Following their debut Follow,The Currys spent nearly two years on the road before settling down in the studio with producers Chris Keup and Stewart Myers (Lifehouse, Jason Mraz). The LP holds plenty of warm, wistful tracks like “Restless” and “Hold Me Here,”swirling piano, mandolin, bass, guitar and light percussion into the same package, with hooks and harmonies leading the charge. Like the Avett Brothers, The Currys know when to crank up their rootsy stomp, but they are just as inspired by the epic sweep of Bruce Springsteen and the rhythmic soul of Marvin Gaye.
Lead single “If I Find It” kicks off with gentle mandolin chords and builds to the signature familial harmonies, at once intricate and revitalizing. The track premiered with PopMatters and is available below.
It’s been years since The Currys played their first songs together as teenage boys, swapping tunes during a series of annual family reunions. West of Here pays tribute to that history, but it pushes the band forward, too, with one foot in the folksy sound of The Currys’ influence and the other pointing toward something new. Having grown a loyal following who have been instrumental in allowing the band to express their unique sound on both their debut and sophomore records, the band will embark on yet another nationwide tour where they are sure to impress old and new fans alike.
