Philly’s Impressionist return with the explosive new Keep Trying EP
Helmed by local sax player Kyle Press, Philly’s Impressionist channel the fearless spirit of late 70s downtown NYC – the free jazz and no-wave and no-wave adjacent art rock community that spawned Sonic Youth, Swans and more. The band is a fearless swirl of sound and energy, roaring guitars and racing drums and spectral horns and keys — the visual metaphor in their band name is apt, and the sound teeters among states of being from desperation to desire.
The band dropped its latest on Bandcamp yesterday, and it’s explosive — Keep Trying ranges from the gentle-to-giant opener “In Your Dreams” to the thumping krautrock vs. drum & bass beats of “Whole Notes.” Give the album a listen in full below, and see the band play it live tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. Tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
