The time is near folks. In fact, in less than 24 hours you’ll be able to get your hands on the brand new Pretty Girls EP from Austin’s A. Sinclair. We’ve been writing quite a bit about the group lately, as we’re really excited to see the increased output from the band, not to mention their growing maturity in songwriting. Today we bring you a brand new song, “Throwing Up on the Ground,” which features more twang than the previous two singles the band have released. It demonstrates the careful balance between the band’s influences and their ability to rock live. And, speaking of rocking, the band will be doing just that, live at the Mohawk this Thursday, celebrating the release of the brand new EP; they’ll be joined by Otis and the Destroyer, Chasca, and the Docs.
A. Sinclair is on a roll here with the latest single from the Pretty Girls EP. This track opens up with a similar riff to that of English Beat‘s “Mirror in the Bathroom,” but the song gets a little more discordant as it pushes along. It’s representative of a new attitude, now that the group has tossed aside the Frank Smith name; it also embodies the forceful attitude that the band have brought to their live sets lately. Don’t think they’ve thrown away their knack for a touch of pop, with “Suit Up” slowing for a brief moment just before the 1 minute mark. Their new EP hits on May 20th, followed by a release show on May 22nd at Mohawk.
We’ve been patiently waiting for the new EP of A. Sinclair, the band formerly known as Frank Smith; a new song is here today. Singer Aaron promised us that the band would be building a louder sound, which fits more with the band’s live performances of late. While the opening of the tune ambles a bit in the way of atmospherics, the song jumps into a rocking jam within seconds, collecting all the promise we’ve seen in the band over the last several years. If you’ve been following the group, you’re going to be proud of the confidence and craftsmanship this tune shows. Get ready to hear their new Pretty Girls EP when it’s released on May 20th.
