The L.A. based band DWNTWN announces their forthcoming debut album Racing Time by sharing the new single “Bloodshot Eyes.” Don’t let the cooing vocals that opens up the track fool you, this is a beast of a song that’s as relentless as a cheetah pouncing on its prey. The album will be released July 21st on Jullian Records.
Racing Time features 10 tracks and concludes with a stunning rendition of Anita Carter’ s 1960s chestnut “As The Sparrow Goes,” featuring a guest appearance by the band’s Jamie Leffler’ s stepmother, Carlene Carter. Here, Carlene’ s richly expressive vocals beautifully complement Jamie’ s dreamy singing. On the heels of the release of DWNTWN’ s masterful debut, Jamie is reflective. A moment that stands out to her in making the album is sharing her music with her stepmother. Jamie says: “It felt really good to reconnect. She told me: ‘ I want you to know your dad would have been so proud of you.'”
