Have mercy y’all, The Currys have announced their return with their sophomore LP West Of Here, out March 25th. The latest LP finds brothers Jimmy and Tommy Curry and cousin Galen Curry once again wrapped in their own modern brand of harmony rich Americana. West Of Here showcases each of the family members’ songwriting chops and is a welcome addition to today’s contemporary folk landscape.
True to its title, West Of Here is an album born after The Currys spent nearly two years on the road before settling down in the studio with producers Chris Keup and Stewart Myers (Lifehouse, Jason Mraz); the LP holds plenty of warm, wistful tracks, swirling piano, mandolin, bass, guitar and light percussion into the same package, with hooks and harmonies leading the charge. Like the Avett Brothers, The Currys know when to crank up their rootsy stomp, but they are just as inspired by the epic sweep of Bruce Springsteen and the rhythmic soul of Marvin Gaye.
Snag a listen to their swoon-worthy new single, “Firestarter”:
