Brainstory - "Hanging On"

Photo by Carlos Garcia

As much as we love vintage sounding soul in the current neo-soul movement, sometimes it's refreshing to hear a band put a new spin on the classic sound. Enter Brainstory with their psych-soul sound. The Los Angeles trio have released a new single, "Hanging On." It has that laid back and smooth sound that all the best soul does, but Brainstory adds this odd little psychedelic element along with just a little grit to the song to make it sound truly unique. There is also an interesting level of distortion in "Hanging On," which I don't think I've ever heard in soul before. This is still classic sounding soul, just with an interesting twist.
