Chicago's emerging band the 1900s have finally finished recording, mixing and putting their stamp on the follow up to last year's well-received Plume Delivery. This new set, which is still yearning for a title, will show the band's growth since putting out last year's delicious, sunshiny-folk EP. The septet, comprising three ladies and four fellas, is talking to a bunch of labels to release this new album. They're going to play a few shows during SXSW, where they'll hopefully make a decision on where they want to release their debut full-length collection.
In the meantime, the band sent me this never-before-heard song, "When I Say Go." The track shows 1900s moving in a new direction, adding lush, layered vocals, strings, darker content, aggressive and crunchy guitars. In other words, the band is growing up. And if this song is any sign of what the rest of the album will deliver, it will remind so many of us why we first fell in love with the 1900s about a year ago when they played one of their first shows, at Chicago's Empty Bottle.
1900s play three shows at SXSW:
March 14: Habana Calle 6 @ 11:30 pm
