After offering up their debut single and video “Woods” (Music Video , EMPT Exclusive ) last year, Countryclub (the Brooklyn, NY based indie duo consisting of Lauren Musacchio and Dan Cohen), have emerged from the studio once again for their next Brooklyn serenade.
Submitted for our approval, is the group’s latest, and aptly-titled —“Another Time”.
Adding to their haunting melodies, DIY electro rhythms and confident arrangements that caught our attention the first time around, this one cranks up the introspective dial a few melancholy notches. The lyrics tell a story that’s both infinitely personal and universally familiar—what happens when we’re confronted with our past, and how exactly do we reckon with the sea of emotions that comes with the “ebb and flow” of a relationship in constant flux. Are we pensive? despondent? ….or defiantly hopeful?
“Another Time” also showcases Musacchio’s fantastic vocal range and texture, along with Cohen’s rugged & clever musicianship (including a Sonic Youth-esque guitar solo at the end). This mixture of beauty & grit is what really separates Countryclub apart. The track gloriously builds to one final, potentially life-altering, moment when Lauren asks “Why can’t you stay?” (we’ll let the listener answer that question).
So please sit back with a lemonade wherever you are and enjoy the Summer while it lasts… but enjoy the drama and the journey of “Another Time” forever….
Countryclub will be performing in NYC including this Thursday 7.14 at Pianos in the Lower East Side. An EP is also due out this year, which is Produced & Mixed by David Sisko (remixed // Ninjasonik, Roxy Music, Au Revoir Simone, Goldfrapp, Cut Copy, Ava Raiin)
