Armistice - ST (EP)




No Video


Western spaghetti meets swingjazz and doowop inflected voices, Armistice is a keeper. The EP's first single, "Mission Bells" (available on 45tours.ca), showcases the undeniable magic between Martin and Malinowski's voices. Michael Maxxis directed the video, aptly filmed in the California desert in December (available soon). "City Lights Cry", which begins with Martin's wispy melancholy vocals is driven by El Bronx's fast getaway in the middle of the night percussion beat. "Neon Lights" brings the harmonies in flashback to Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra fashion. The album also includes Armistice's version of "Jeb Rand", a song originally recorded by Bedouin Soundclash. It finishes off with the haunting strings and piano driven tale of "God Will Get His Man".
