New Single from Earlimart – Digital Servicing Only

For years, Earlimart have paired lush, lovely acoustic guitar songwriting with disenchantment. Their dichotomy is similar to that of the central California city the duo takes their name from. Consisting mainly of wide open spaces, this could be seen as quaint to some and frustratingly desolate to others — compelling one to either add something ugly to its serenity or highlight its dilapidation. On their new album System Preferences, the group refer to the music they formed on their six prior releases and touch on the disillusionment with and acceptance of technology, complex relationships, and lost weekends. On the band’s new single “97 Heart Attack”, band members Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray‘s calm vocals, reserved guitar strumming, and stomping rhythm make for an easy listen. As the song continues, a sweeping guitar noise interjects in between each line, proving the group isn’t completely at peace with their surroundings. Recorded at Espinoza‘s studio in Los Angeles, The Ship, and self-released under the label of the same name, the lead single is followed by a string of tour dates, including a couple opening for Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard.
