Explore the somber western landscape that is home to Brandon Can’t Dance’s “Angelina”
Brandon Can’t Dance, also known as Brandon Ayres, released a new track called “Angelina” this week, the latest teaser his forthcoming LP Graveyard of Good Times. The record is out January 13th via Lucky Number Records.
“Angelina” is only the second song released off the record and we already can’t wait. It opens with a coarse acoustic guitar riff and a musical monologue about a woman struggling with depression as her friends build lives of their own. The story might as well have come right out of a Flannery O’Connor novel, and Ayres follows with some gravelly vocals that are a stark contrast to those in the first song released off the album, “Smoke and Drive Around.” Never fear, the aforementioned vocals end up making an appearance and precede a fiercely mesmerizing electric guitar line. Ayres is always growing and has tried his hand in a number of genres: indie-rock, synth-pop and now some dusty blues-rock.
Brandon Can’t Dance just finished off a nationwide tour with fellow Philadelphian Alex G and it doesn’t look like he has any shows coming up. Keep your eye on the WXPN Concert Calendar for any potential updates and step into the intriguingly bleak Western landscape created in “Angelina” below.
