Texas Pop-Rockers Eisley Release 'Combinations'
In the first minute of the album's opener — the rock-oriented "Many Funerals" — sisters and vocalists Stacy and Sherri DuPree trade lines and harmonize with a beauty unique in modern music, as the guitars and drums carry the song along.
Building on the success of their lauded debut Room Noises, the guitar-driven Combinations is a diverse collection of songs that nevertheless fit comfortably together. The lyrics shift effortlessly from romantic to quirky ("Invasion" even involves an alien takeover), but always keep the listener fixated on the track at hand.
But where Room Noises contained a mix of new songs and re-recorded older tunes, Combinations is the band's first full-length of all new material. "It was exhilarating for us to have an opportunity to start from scratch," Stacy says. "We were excited to start writing this record and, because of that energy, we wrote a lot of the songs very quickly."
The Duprees worked with film composer and former Oingo Boingo keyboardist Richard Gibbs at his Woodshed Studios in Malibu, CA. The producer helped the quintet explore their more avant-garde impulses on songs such as "If You're Wondering" and even their rootsier influences on "Ten Cent Blues." The band is gearing up to support the album with a tour with Mute Math which kicks off in September.
Combinations is out now on Warner/Reprise.
