Tuxis Giant releases split EP with Traded

To listen to Boston based trio Tuxis Giant is to delve into the deep recesses of your mind. The rollicking guitar riffs and the gentle plucking of the chords play out like quiet, contemplative ruminations that creep up to you in the dark hours of the night. O'Conner’s voice glides over the melancholy melodies like pleading whispers before the electric guitar swells and his voice bellows over them. Tuxis Giant is the type of band you can listen to during long, midnight drives by yourself–the windows down with the wind racing past you. The band released a full length album in 2015 but just released a 4 song EP split with Traded (streaming below). Expect a full band show in a month so keep an eye on their Facebook page for details and listen to their album below!

New Track: "Falling Into Skies" - Queue

Quintet Queue breathes an open-air melody on “Falling Into Skies”. A climbing guitar line falls into step with the percussion as Olivia Price’s vocals emerge through the highly-elevated clouds. Hovering in that semi-conscious groove, the single places you in an elegant, awakening limbo.
