Â Here is some information that Total Assault thought was particularly breaking, but was not long enough to merit a full article:
This week marks the long awaited second album from Texasâ€™ own Eisley. Combinations finds the band, made up of 4 siblings and one cousin, pushing their brand of britpop influenced songs into far more orchestral areas. The Duprees worked with film composer and former Oingo Boingo keyboardist Richard Gibbs at his Woodshed Studios in Malibu, CA. The producer helped the quintet explore their more avant-garde impulses on songs such as â€œIf Youâ€™re Wonderingâ€ and even their rootsier influences on â€œTen Cent Blues.â€ The band is gearing up to support the album with a tour with Mute Math which kicks off in September.
Combinations is out now on Reprise Records
