Watch the new video from Seattle band Evening Bell for Tail Light which finds them driving across the late night underbelly of Seattle in a 1972 Roadrunner and 1964 Dodge Dart GT. The track is taken their debut album, Dying Stars, due for release on August 12th.
On their debut album, Dying Stars, Seattle band Evening Bell pours a razor sharp blend of classical training and unadulterated passion into eight psychedelic-country tunes. It’s the kind of album you might expect to come from Ennio Morricone and David Bowie watching Twin Peaks together. A collision of cosmic country and spaced-out psychotropic melodies. Cinematic lyricism meets Seattle barroom honky-tonk.
The two principal songwriters in Evening Bell– Caitlin Sherman and Hart Kingsbery – transcend the constraints of nostalgia to create something truly different. Sherman’s interest in Film composition shines through these songs in a kind of cosmic-cowboy punk, while Kingsbery’s bittersweet country heartbreak brings a gravitas to the music. These aren’t dilettantes in Seattle’s Ballard country music scene, but two people who’ve lived hard and worked hard, bringing a stronger perspective to the hard realities they sing about in their music. To be released August 12, 2016, Dying Stars has the kind of self-assurance you usually find in veteran Americana bands, the kind of weight that comes from knowing your own vision of American music.
