The songs are coming along awesome! Have about 10-15 new songs and hope to write a handful more before finally recording in the fall. Still working on a bit more lyrics, Have a lot written but just need to piece them all together now. The music is just very melodic, raw, catchy, upbeat, sing along rock songs... Kinda like Minneapolis in a train wreck with early 90's Chapel Hill passed out drunk in the alley behind Gilman ST. ...Something like that. whatever. It's just flowing naturally and feels pretty great so far.
