Alternative, Indie | The Ampersands Genre-bend via New Single, “The Pigeon”

Posted by on August 5, 2021

Rarely does a name as abstract as ‘The Ampersands’ so accurately describe an act but upon exposure to duo Aaron McQuade & Jim Pace’s work, it just clicks. Every revelation of the band unearths five more layers beneath – whether a track that cycles between genres like verses or the incredible stage antics of the live shows, with The Ampersands audiences are always left with niggling hook: “and one more thing…” This guiding philosophy is on full display on the single ‘The Pigeon’. In the vein of the titular animal, the song takes flight through the worlds of Indie Pop/Rock, Alt. Contemporary Disco, sections layered to the nines, and moments of reflection carried by simple piano alongside vocals duelling with a gentle bass. An erratic structure follows in the dreams of the song’s hero caught restless between a desire and inability to move on. Between the song’s introspective and melancholic lyrics, optimistic and fun melody, and ever shifting composition, The Pigeon is a song that will keep listeners coming back eager to discover that last little thing they may have missed. This is the first piece of music I’ve heard by the upcoming duo but I am thoroughly impressed and intrigued to hear more by them (hopefully) soon enough. Check their new single out above now!

Posted by on June 12, 2017

I got this promo sent recently, and I love it! Here is what the artists had to say, which is way better than what I had besides this tune being a smash:

Shraban releases his first song in over two months and it shows off all the work he’s been putting in. This new release ‘Shoot’ talks of some of the wildest times in his life, and carries the late night vibes prominent in the industry as of late. With chilling vocals and ambient vibes, the song has it all. Self produced by Shraban, his upcoming tape ‘Trap N B’ will be releasing soon as well.

Make sure you keep your eyes out for this newcomer!
