Band: THE DISTRICTS
Who: Indie rockers from Philadelphia, PA
Active: 2009-present / 5 LPs (including new one)
Info: “The Districts return with their biggest, boldest and most naturally pop album.
It’s upbeat and has a real XTC mid period edge. It’s a bundle of fun and a real surprise.
This record is a new era. The desire to create something larger than yourself, that will
infiltrate people’s hearts like well oiled machines, to paint pictures that will shake them and create a resounding push forward towards something more. In our pandemic isolation, what we wanted was to play a loud collage of music, unconfined by preconceived notions of what it should be, and to transcend ourselves in a room full of breathing, screaming, vibrating human beings – to let the darkness out in a cathartic squeal of noise, eclipsing it with light. We wanted to feel it all at once with you and to escape this fucked up world and find our way into a better one together.
Singles/clips: Do It Over / I Want To Feel It All
– I WANT TO FEEL IT ALL –
– DO IT OVER –
This is the astounding song (from 2015 album A Flourish And A Spoil)
that made me fall in love with this vehement band…
