In case you missed it, Immersive Atlanta premiered the album’s second single, “Consolidate”, last week. The lead single, “Passengers”, premiered in January with Myspace, which the band quickly followed up with an appearance on BalconyTV — atop the historic Tabernacle music venue in Atlanta.
Born from a life altering experience while Tallent was living in Australia, the band’s debut EP, The Bay of Gordon | The South, chronicles a nomadic transition from New South Wales back to life on the Florida / Georgia line — a cathartic experience for the artist and listener alike.
Says Tallent, on the impetus for the record, “The songs on the debut EP were devised from the process of learning to live in a separate culture and the uncomfortable decision to come back to my small hometown in the South.”
Be sure to find the band in a city near you, as they make stops in a few of your favorite Southeast spots later this month.
