Next Tuesday, Feb. 17, Oakland quartet, Audrye Sessions will release their self-titled debut record via RCA Imprint Black Seal Records. Audrye Sessions are driven by carefully crafted, power-pop hooks, sweeping verses and lead singer, Ryan Karazija's masterful-vocal performances. At their core, the songs on the record are intimate enough for acoustic performances, but with a full backing band they are big enough to fill spaces as large as the Bowery Ballroom, if not larger. In the time of super lo-fi recordings (we still love you Times New Viking), it's nice to hear a record with solid, clean production. Recorded by Andrew Scheps (U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash) and Matt Radosevich (The Hives, Taking Back Sunday) the album highlights its best asset, Karazija's voice, to the fullest and most powerful extent.
Thanks to Black Seal we have a copy of the record to give away to the 5th person to email me at Starkny@gmail.com - U.S. only please.
