Landing somewhere between the rock & soul sound of Cold War Kids & the folk-pop throes of the Walkmen, the Districts distinguish their sound with a jangling alt-country bent & youthful enthusiasm.
Hailing from Pennsylvania's historic Lancaster County are the Districts, four young men with electric guitars, tube amps, passionate, raw vocals & a familiarly appealing sound. Kicking off the set is ‘Rocking Chair,’ an able, riffy jangle rocker, sung with sweaty abandon & featuring some nicely arranged group backing vocals. The middle three tracks, all plucked from their self-released LP, continue with the same sort of strummy, reverb-drenched indie rock as the opener, while The fifth & final track, ‘Stay Open,’ shows a bit more range & dynamic complexity.
