THE RELEASE OF 'PYRITE AND STEEL' WITH GENTRY BLUE
Gentry Blue releases the highly anticipated EP 'Pyrite and Steel'!
What hot new sounds are you working on right now?
We're currently working on some new singles to release for the future; one can say we're still discovering our sound! We're very inspired by a large variety of genres. We're all big classic rock fans but recently we've been studying and diving into 90s grunge rock, such as Toadies and Pearl Jam. Some other artists that we've individually been exploring are Weyes Blood, Bjork, Hozier, Ghost, Pretty Reckless, and Blue Oyster Cult.
What is an upcoming release you want to talk about?
We are releasing our debut EP on April 22! It's titled "Pyrite and Steel". One could call it "70s psychedelic violin rock". It's available everywhere online.
What has been your favorite part of the recording process?
Recording in the studio is always extremely exciting, but mixing gives the songs a breath of life! Listening to the result on playback is a blast, to say the least. The entire process is a lot of fun but still challenging.
What is a lifesaver when it comes to keeping you mentally at peace with all that the band is up to?
All of us are very busy on a day-to-day basis; in a way, the band's overall antics provide a strange busy peace to us all. There's a strange peace in the chaos; different from our work as full-time students!
What is the best downtime activity that's reminded you to enjoy the ride you're on?
For Jo and Lydia, a hot cup of tea usually does the job. Sometimes simply laying down and relaxing is always a good breather. We're all big movie buffs, too-- there are hangouts and movie nights at Travis and Debo's house all the time!
Where can we find you on streaming and social media?
