You be me, I’ll be you

Tennessee is a long way from England, both culturally and geographically, but there’s no mistaking the British influence in And the Relatives‘ “Hammer Down.” It’s got brittle guitar strums, a fuzzy bassline and some distinctly English-sounding vocal inflections. There’s also an absolutely fantastic instrumental break, punctuated by a jagged guitar solo and some 8-bit-sounding keyboard leads. Nashville has never sounded quite so much like Manchester.

You can stream all of the band’s recent album, Green Machinery, over at Soundcloud. “Hammer Down” is below.
