Some excellent news today of a new album from Philly alt-country crew Florry. The band’s takes a move from 12xU to local label Dear Life for the upcoming release of The Holey Bible. They kick things off today with the album opener “Drunk and High,” as perfect an entry point as any. Thickening their sound by wide measures from the homespun n’ humble, Big Fall, it’s clear that the band have spent the last few years harnessing a new direction. The song wraps its knuckles around a hard-swung, late night barroom brand of country rock. Fiddles hit high atop the swing of the rhythm section, the band buttressing perfectly pocketed twang with sing-along choruses that careen in unpolished perfection. That unvarnished edge is key. It’s clear the band has gone to lengths to flesh out their sound, but they don’t lose a lick of the charm of the debut. At just a shot over two-minutes, the song starts collapsing to a close just about the time the crowd gets dancin’ but for the homebound listeners, it begs to hit the speakers on a loop until you’ve let it burrow under the skin for good. The new record is out August 4th.
