New on the UK scene, Boston band Air Traffic Controller perform an acoustic version of their single 'Hurry Hurry' taken from their upcoming album 'Nordo' due out in early 2014 on their own label, Sugarpop Records.
Lead singer Dave Munro, lead guitarist Steve Scott and bassist Casey Sullivan perform the track in a homely recording space with Dave and Casey on acoustic guitars and Steve on an electric mandolin. There's a raw ease to the intimate performance with a perfect sense of unity between the three musicians. The wonderfully up-tempo song itself, as an unpolished acoustic version, gives a more genuinely uplifting vibe, with the modern folk twangs and country vocal hiccups adding a sense of pure fun. It's the kind of song that's just there to brighten up your day.
The band have had prominent success in the US for a few years now after the release of their debut album 'The One', but their entrance to the UK scene with 'Nordo' promises many more major successes - particularly as it was the public that made it happen through ATC's Kickstarter album project. With several awards and nominations under their belt as well as much radio play, things are looking bright for this Boston indie group.
