Best Friend - Swallow

Best Friend - "Swallow" and "Still There"

We're not sure if this constitutes "local" music now that Best Friend is based out of Nashville, but these guys were once from here, so we'll be happy to claim them forever. Best Friend is back with their entrancing, shoe-gazey brand of rock. Swallow is an ethereal two-song EP that is a joy to listen to. The bass and drums are just strong enough to hold up the delicate vocals and spacey effects accomplishing a really nice balance. Everything this band puts out is better than the last thing they put out, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them.

The only downside to this release is that it only has two songs. One bit of good news, however, is that they already have plans for more songs in the works. In the meantime, Best Friend would advise you to either stream Swallow here or on their Bandcamp (where you can find more of their stuff) rather than try to google the record title.
