Promised Land Sound at The Independent 10/27/2015

After touring with Alabama Shakes and Angel Olsen, Nashville's Promised Land Sound hit the road with Natalie Prass in support of their latest release, For Use and Delight. The two indie bands played at The Independent last Tuesday night and while the openers played to a small crowd, the impression they left was big.

Their delicate balancing act of country twang and aspects of Psychedelic rock have made the foursome a favorite at Jack White's Third Man Records (which happens to be based in their home-town) and for good reason. Driven by both electric and acoustic guitar, their sound is uniquely fresh yet nostalgic rendering attention with an amicable rawness. Understandably, the set weighed  heavier with songs off of the new album but did included some from their debut release as well.

Brothers, Joey Scala (bass/vocals) and Evan Scala (drums), lead vocalist Sean Thompson and classically trained keyboardist, Ricardo Alessio share a sincerity on stage, one that amplifies their Southern roots vibe, even in the dim lighting at The Independent.
