It’s been a couple years since the Charleston trio Heyrocco has played Savannah, but they’ve sure been busy elsewhere with tours across the U.S. and in Europe.
Last Friday, Heyrocco released their new EP Waiting on Cool via Dine Alone Records and Vital Music Grop (U.K. and Europe). The guys are still exploring a kind of grungy pop — a self-described “Disney grunge” — but the new songs here have a little more room to breathe and develop in surprising ways.
The title Waiting on Cool has an air of ennui — of the boredom of the road, of hanging out, of youth — as one can literally see Nate and Tanner waiting on bassist Chris Cool, but it obviously plays on the ironies of “cool” in other ways.
Check out the new record on Spotify, and click here to purchase on iTunes.
I’ve shot a bunch of photos of Heyrocco over the last few years — at Savannah Stopover, a No Control Festival, The Sparetime, Hang Fire, a private party — but all the pics feel pretty old at this point since the band hasn’t played Savannah in a minute. In other words, they look so young! Still, if you want to see some pics, click on through.
