The Tisburys are gearing up to release their new Crooked RoadEP late next month, a follow-up to 2015’s Sacks of Phones debut. Led by singer / guitarist Tyler Asay (an occasional contributing writer to The Key), the Scranton-born / Philly-based alt-rockers shared lead single “Heart of Chrome” on Bandcamp last week.

“Heart of Chrome” is an upbeat Americana track steeped in heartache and broken bonds from the perspective of missing what you once had when it’s too late to get it back. Despite the regretful tone of lyrics it’s still a pretty feel-good song thanks to the sonic arrangements. A catchy guitar melody gives way to an explosive chorus, while a twist of piano brightens the mood.

Stream “Heart of Chrome” below. The Tisburys host a record release show for Crooked Roads at Ortlieb’s on January 28th with Darlingtyn, Mother Moses, and Dweller; pick up tickets for the 21+ show here.
