Bands like the Districts only come around once in a long time. Powerful guitars, great vocals, strong bass to bring it all together, hard hitting drums. The song, Young Blood, being almost 9 minutes long, surprisingly feels like it should be longer. The song has a great mixture of tempo change, build ups, and crazy guitar solos. Must listen.
"The Districts are a band that exists in the moment. Described by close friends and girlfriends as a well oiled machine, filthily cult like, and also “normal dudes.”
The Philadelphia four-piece channels its long-forged bonds into visceral, explosive genre blurring music. Informed equally by arrangements and dynamics, and a focus on lyrics, they take inspiration from a broad range of sounds and places. They are constantly evolving and hard to pin down.
From their self released LP “Telephone,” to their 2015 label debut LP “A Flourish and a Spoil,” The Districts keep at work touring and recording. Formed in 2009, they have been going strong for quite a while now. An anonymous insider report claims they have recorded a new album and it is more realized and in your face than ever before. Be on the lookout."
