Published Sep 19, 2013Gentlemen Husbands' press materials note that the band members got their start playing in hardcore groups, but their sound is now a rootsy blend of country and rock. Having signed with Universal Music Canada, the Ontario outfit will release their House of Cards EP on September 30. Before then, the EP is available to stream in full on Exclaim.ca.
The four-song collection kicks of with "Shelter Valley" and "Come Down," a pair of wistful country rock tracks with a vintage heartland sound. They mix thing up on the echoing atmospheres of "Bloodlines," and the EP concludes with the pop-friendly keyboard bounce "Wandering Eye."
Gentlemen Husbands are touring with Matthew Good this fall. See their schedule at their website. And of course, listen to House of Cards below.
