Army Navy – “Seismic”

By Will Oliver, December 2nd 2019

After a five-year hiatus, Los Angeles band Army Navy have returned with their brand new single “Seismic.”

They haven’t missed a beat, effortlessly capturing that timeless and instantly gratifying indie rock sound that they always won me over with. Although we are currently being hit with our first snowfall of the year here in New York (ugh), “Seismic” is a welcome easy-breezy slice of summer sounding rock that is hitting that tender sweet spot.

We can only hope that a new album will follow in 2020. Enjoy a listen to “Seismic” below.

He’s just recently released his new single “Future Swim,” the first song lifted from his new album Ruby Beach, due out in summer 2020. Fawnwoda learned violin and piano at a young age and even worked as an intern as Hans Zimmer for three years following his time at The University of Miami and then the Tibetan Buddhist-founded Naropa University.

Last night Phish opened their very short fall tour that will last 10 days but see the band play 7 shows and a special show for SiriusXM. They opened with a bang blasting into “First Tube” that had Trey holding his guitar high up in the air. A bust out of “Bye Bye Foot” for the first time since 1997 and the debut of Page McConnell’s “Maybe” from Vida Blue were the special selections from the band. Closing out set one with a very fun romp through Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” kept the Thanksgiving run tradition of celebrating the late guitarist’s birthday.
