Brooklyn-based five-piece Robbers on High Street
have released a vinyl single titled "Electric Eye", with b-side "Face The Fog" via Engine Room Recordings. The cuts are delightfully soulful, savory rock tunes that are guaranteed to impress with their tight musicianship and catchy tunefulness.
The songs are from an album called Hey There Golden Hair
, although we can't tell you much more yet. The band is backed by the Daptone horn section, who have worked with heavyweights like Amy Winehouse
(OK, former heavyweight) and Sharon Jones
(current heavyweight), on many of the cuts for extra soul power.
The band played several CMJ dates, but hasn't announced any further shows save for one. Don't go looking for the group's original material, though: the band will be playing in musical costume as Electric Light Orchestra
on Halloween night at the Mercury Lounge.
