Gamblers channel pure bliss on latest single, announce EP out on 09.07

Sometimes it can seem arbitrary what gets labeled as derivative and what gets labeled as simply inspired. Why does an indie rock band get called rip-offs while a similar group is deconstructing sounds and reinventing old ideas? Gamblers are the latest band to confront this question with their newest single “Corinthian Order” off their upcoming EP of the same name. Indebted to Wilco, the track features plinking percussion and a slight twang on the guitars as the breezy melodies and lush vocal harmonies shuffle together nonchalantly. The comparisons to the alt-country legends could have ended there, but what makes this reiteration so refreshing is the continuation of Wilco’s almost zen-like understanding of relationships. The laid back approach to miscommunication and realizing that time is the only cure for problems culminates with Beach Boys-esque vocals that coo and assure the world that everything’s all right. It’s an updated take on a classic sound, fusing indie-pop with sentiments that were mastered by previous generations of artists, and it’s what makes Gamblers’ newest song a delightful passing of the torch. The Corinthian Order EP will be out September 7. -Tucker Pennington
