Here’s the back story: I’m going to a concert at the Starlight Theater in KC next week. I bought the ticket to see Imagine Dragons, but I always like to familiarize myself with any supporting bands prior to the date. Well, this concert seems to be a bit of a collage. When the weekend festival Kanrocksas (I keep calling it Rockansas!) cancelled, several of the bands got gigs at the Starlight instead, for what feels like a mini-festival. Another one of the bands playing that night is Churchill.
So I checked them out. And, well, first love happened… I instantly added “Lock Your Heart Down” to my Summer 2013 playlist. That song is part of their most recent EP The War Within, which was released about a month ago. Their new album comes out in July. Get excited!
Churchill is a band from Colorado and their first hit was “Change.” Trying to define their music is not easy. One might go with Indie-folksy-rock-alt-country. There’s a mandolin in there, so I’m sure @DocMurda will get as hooked as I have.
Here’s the video for “Change”
And here’s “Look Your Heart Down”
Funny story. I did my research a couple of weeks ago. And today while listening to my Summer playlist I went to their site to look at their tour dates. When I saw the June 28th date at Starlight, I had a moment of “WAIT! I’ll be up there on that date!” and then it hit me. New music overload? Or am I just getting old?
Happy beginning of Summer, everyone!
