If you're looking to make a cordial introduction, there's no better way to do so than with an infectiously hooked swarm of jangly retro rock. This ideal approach was adopted by Greensboro, NC six-piece Holy Ghost Tent Revival
whose new single "Right State Of Mind" — the title track off the group's forthcoming full-length album — breezes through with psychedelic gusts of Laurel Canyon tones and Bourbon Street brass.
The band's lead vocalist/guitarist Stephen Murray described the song's conception:
"This was one of those songs that just pours out of you in a matter of minutes. A few days prior to writing it I went to see one of my favorite local bands, Roseland, at the Blind Tiger. They blew me away that night. The whole time I was grinning and dancing and loving every second of their set. We ended up hanging pretty late and getting into some trouble, as one does on a Tuesday night. I couldn't get their songs out of my head nor the appreciation for their love of good ole' rock and roll so I picked up the guitar and wrote this tune kind of as a thank you to those boys."
