- Girls ‘Round Here Lenox Hills 4:13
- I Feel It Coming On Lenox Hills 3:48
Lenox Hills have officially premiered their new double single titled ‘Girls ‘Round Here’ and ‘I Feel It Coming On’, both releasing tomorrow (October 15th, 2021).
They say the rock is in the riff, and ‘Girls ‘Round Here’ proves that beyond fallibility. That first chord and how it jets into the raucous hook is as infectious as anything heard yet in the annals of music. The song is signature and anthemic with the solid hook and music that combine to make a song fit for the stage and a sing-along for any concert they play.
A complete contrast to that is the other single ‘I Feel It Coming On’. What ‘Girls ‘Round Here’ is to the bands show ‘I Feel It Coming On’ is to the band’s longevity. This song has that staying power and, while slightly less energetic than the other single, this has that certain something that shows the next evolution of Lenox Hills and what they plan to do in order to stay a while.
About ‘Girls ‘Round Here’ & ‘I Feel It Coming On’
Reminiscent of icons like COIN and The Arctic Monkeys, these two tracks – characterized by roaring choruses impossible to not sing along to – are bound to invigorate any party playlist. Steeped in a uniquely Lenox Hills sound and bursting at the seams with an infatuating charisma, the band continues to showcase the grunge-chic aesthetic they’ve achieved through their enticing synergy. The band has developed their sound over the course of years; having grown up together in the same neighborhood, these best friends are committed to evolving with each other as people and musicians. This double release is Lenox Hills’ first project since their 2020 ‘Names’ EP. “Girls ‘Round Here” and “I Feel It Coming On” irrefutably deliver the epicness that has become a key element of Lenox Hills’ artistic identity.
These two tracks – while displaying a cohesive sound that compliments each other – demonstrate the broad range of Lenox Hills’ creative capabilities. On “Girls ‘Round Here,” rowdy verses driven by Kyle Swenson’s booming percussion get listeners grooving from the very start. This track tells the wistful story of a tender hope for love complicated by a clashing romance. Luke Mullin’s dreamy vocals cut through the boisterous percussion with ease, drawing in listeners with soulful lyricism dripping in melancholy. All encompassing electric guitar (Packy Mullin) and rich bass lines (Kameron Dunn) round out this energetic anthem. In “I Feel It Coming On,” twangy western-inspired fingerstyle guitar introduces this track before a subtle transition to a steady rock groove. Heartfelt and embellished with romantically poetic lyrics, this is the type of feverish love song people dream to have written about them. Prepare to have the particularly catchy, lively chorus of this track repeating in your head.
The band worked on these two singles – which come from the group of tracks compiled for their next project – over the last two years. Having begun the writing process for this project in 2019, after many months of refining and perfecting, the band has created a final product in 2021 that each member is proud of. This project came to life in collaboration with producer Logan Matheny, who has contributed to a variety of notable projects including Jack White, Judah & The Lion, Colony House, and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes. While the creative process presented its challenges to the Tennessee natives, they managed to capture the band’s essence through an undeniably Lenox Hills signature sound.
About Lenox Hills
Tennessee rock quartet — with a raucous, yet dynamic demeanor — Lenox Hills was founded in 2016 by brothers Luke (vocals, guitar) and Packy Mullin (guitar), along with Kyle Swenson (drums) and Kameron Dunn (bass). They released their debut EP, “The Stricken Young,” in 2017; a collection of 4 songs that dealt with love, ache and the particulars of youthful consequence. Since then, the band has released a second EP (“Names,” 2020) along with various singles, refining their dense rock instincts and further developing the core musical relationships within the band. The guitars of Luke and Packy Mullin have become simultaneously tighter and more comfortable with one another, while Dunn’s bass and Swenson’s drums have evolved together into an intricately layered and bombastic rhythmic section.
