Bridges & Powerlines release new LP 'National Fantasy' on 10.14 at Pianos

In NYC, bands are born and die on a daily basis. Sometimes, though, they return. Bridges and Powerlines has been making records since 2007, which means that they have been around for at least a decade (congrats are due). The band plays a brand of indie pop that interestingly blends elements of folk,rock and synth-pop, although the rootsy factor is definitely more pronounced in the upcoming LP's first single and title-track 'National Fantasy,' whose video is streaming here. The storyline follows a backpacking skateboarder on a quest for direction, appropriately referencing Spaghetti Western bothvisually and sonically. The band will be celebrating the new release with a show at Pianos on October 14th. - photo by Mara Abols
