HEAR THIS: NO
Fresh off of celebrating their 50th show as a band, Echo Park’s own NO have dropped their new single on White Iris Records. What’s Your Name continues the growing complexity of the band’s arrangements without sacrificing melody, as evidenced by the clever whistling track hidden in the mix. NO stashes more magic on the B-side. Eleven Eleven is a driving ode to visitors from outer space that’s grand in scope and a total earworm.
The single distills the best moments of the band’s EP, Don’t Worry, You’ll Be Here Forever, and serves as a signpost to where they’ll go next, and next would be the Chateau De NO, a cabin at Big Bear, where the band is currently sequestered recording a new LP.
