It’s been a rainy spring so far, but we at the Lovely Hearts Club haven’t let that stop us in our tireless mission of seeking out the best new music to share with you. If you’re craving something to get you moving in spite of the gray weather, just have a listen to our latest find: the electrifying Brooklyn quartet GunFight! The band are all New York natives, but they formed in 2006 in Boston, where they made a name for themselves on the house party circuit. This shouldn’t be surprising to anyone who hears their debut album; while the songs have all been polished in the studio, they are still infused with the sort of kinetic urgency and contagious energy of an all night rager. Their unique blend of countrified rock and classic punk is just the thing to get you jazzed for all the summer fun looming just on the horizon.
If you’re in New York, make sure you don’t miss their set at Brooklyn’s best outdoor music festival, Hillstock, where they will be rocking the block party at 106 Emerson Place on June 4th. If you can’t make it out, you can check out their rollicking track Sticks here, bust out the whiskey, and party on your own.
