It’s been a busy couple weeks for Alex Mery & The Townsmen.
First, they were the featured artist at Open Mic Night with Billy Bauer at SteelStacks. Then, it was revealed that they will be at American Spirits Roadhouse tomorrow night.
And yesterday, they released a new single.
“Lay Down Arms,” mixed by Kevin Soffera at Hybrid Studios, draws a bit more strongly on the band’s pop punk influences, with Alex Mery’s vocals being reminiscent of emo’s heyday. All the while, there is still a prevalence of the folk sensibilities that brought this trio to the dance.
If you like “Lay Down Arms,” there’s more where that came from. The band is preparing to release an EP this summer, which means it won’t be long before you hear even more new music from these rising local stars.
