Elk City is a New Jersey band that features members of Versus, Luna, and Feed. If you know any of those bands, you're going to have a little bit of an idea of what they sound like. Their new single, "Your Time Doesn't Exist," has a timeless quality. It doesn't sound like a throwback, and it certainly doesn't sound modern. Their press release compares them to bands like 10,000 Maniacs, Throwing Muses, Jefferson Airplane, and The Fiery Furnaces, and I hear that all in here. It's classic, edgy, vintage psychedelia mixed with 80's college rock, but all with a modern feel to it. "Your Time Doesn't Exist" has that familiar but completely unique sound to it that music fans strive to find with new artists.
You can watch the video for "Your Time Doesn't Exist" below. Above the Water is due out October 21 on Magic Door Record Label, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Elk City, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
