Mercury Nashville’s newest band, Boy Named Banjo, announced their new EP, Circles, today. Dropping August 27, American Songwriter describes the project as, “Marrying a myriad of influences within the country/bluegrass/folk realm, Nashville-based quintet Boy Named Banjo sets an energetic pace for their forthcoming major-label debut…” Pre-save Circles HERE.
The seven-song EP, produced by Oscar Charles (Charlie Worsham, Carly Peace, Elvie Shane), illustrates their evolved, genre-defying sound. “Our Circles EP has been years in the making,” says the band. “With the unexpected time at home during the pandemic, we decided to dive back into this music and try to make it the very best that it could be. We feel the finished product both highlights and represents our band like nothing we have released before. We could not be more proud and grateful to present this EP to the world.”
Fans can catch a glimpse of Boy Named Banjo’s new EP with a live performance video of their song “Feel For You” and the EP’s title track, “Circles,” which MusicRow Magazine calls, “Packed with pep, this country rocker ramps up the energy with hearty vocals, relentless percussion and ripples of banjo notes beneath wafting electric guitar.”
