It seems like only five minutes have passed since Empty White Circles popped up on the scene, quickly grabbing a lot of attention and positive reactions to their Americana-tinged indie rock. So it shouldn’t take too long to get used to their new name – Loud Mountains – and their forthcoming EP is something to look forward to.
Here’s a video for ‘Innocent’, a track from the EP, released in advance of its release. The track continues in a similar fashion to Empty White Circles; it’s a positive-sounding fuzzy guitar ball of melody that somewhat switches out the Americana-isms of EWC for the song-driven chops of mid-90s US indie rock like Built To Spill and Neutral Milk Hotel.
