Country pop group, LANCO, is all about giving us that feel-good country music with a bit of pop flare, getting us in the mood for anything! After releasing singles "First Beer" and "Near Mrs." earlier this year, the group is back and sounding better than ever with their new EP, Honkey-Tonk Hippies.
This project is exactly what we need, as we head towards the light at the end of this long pandemic-shaped tunnel. The group sings with ease, and sound so darn good together! You can really hear that "live music" feel to each song, knowing that when they take to the stage, there won’t be a single soul stuck in their chair.
Each track is unique, but all share that feeling of wanting to be back creating new sounds, enjoying live music, fun nights on the town, and that feeling of being "Wild Again." Do you remember how we used to be? The group sings about being just as wild as they used to be, not having skipped a beat.
The EP’s title track, "Honkey-Tonk Hippies," is a perfect depiction of their excitement to be back making music, and of the group getting back out to share their music under neon lights.
I need a beer and a cheers, and a place where I can drink it - this couldn’t be more accurate for us country music fans, eagerly awaiting and getting ourselves ready to go out again! LANCO did one heck of a job, summing up all the feelings of getting back to that "normal" human interaction we all used to share, especially surrounding good, live music. We also needed a country song to sing along to, and Honkey -Tonk Hippies is the perfect set of tracks to do just that!
"The two things we love more than anything are playing shows and being in the studio. The #HonkeyTonkHippies EP was recorded with the return to live music in mind and you can hear all of our pent-up energy from being off the road in 2020 through each of these songs." - LANCO
