Allow us to introduce you to The Nickajack Men. The four-piece Americana indie rock band are almost ready to share their debut EP, Wasting Away, a reflection on the daunting transition from being hometown heroes in a local music scene to breaking into a larger market.
Wasting Away comes out on May 26th, but today you can listen to the EP’s first track today. On “Running,” The Nickajack Men establish their particular brand of melancholy. Lewis White’s bittersweet vocals wander through building riffs and fills, as he questions the need to both physically and mentally escape an unsettling reality. The song carries a perfect blend of bass, shakers, and twangy-toned guitars that could easily accompany a long drive at a golden hour.
