Dallas’ @NorthernNatl returns with 5 song EP “The New Age”


About a year ago I wrote about “Love Is Fire”, a single which came to my attention by Dallas band Northern National.  Since that time, Northern National has become a quintet (though still full of Michaels), and after making themselves a presence on the Texas club and rock circuit, return with an EP called The New Age.  Like with “Love Is Fire”, which is included, a spotlight is on the vocals, which are the driving force behind the songs and I’m sure command attention in concert.  But the music has definitely been fleshed out with the addition of two band members, which is particularly notable in the title song, which is the kind of song that takes them away from initial comparisons to bands like Train and instead towards more cutting edge groups like Cage The Elephant.  There’s still a country-tinged backdrop in some of the songs, and “Dallas” could be played live in any city and you’d still get the lighters and cell phone flashlights igniting the show.  Northern National has the chops to stay on rock fans’ radar in these days filled with all kinds of music.  Give The New Age a listen above and pick it up at your favourite online store.
