NEW TRACK: The Districts – ‘Ordinary Day’

Philadelphia four-piece The Districts return with their first piece of music since their 2015 album, A Flourish and a Spoil. ‘Ordinary Day’ (mixed by John Congleton – St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Explosions in the Sky), is a melodic, laid back tune that will make you wish you “covering miles in a broken car” on the road to nowhere.

Speaking about the track, band member Robby Grote says “‘Ordinary Day’ deals with a sort of personal alienation and the realization that you and the world you’ve existed in have changed. Sort of the feeling of coming through a tunnel and having no way of relating to things in the same way as before. It was written in late summer/early fall and came together quite naturally… Personal lives were in flux and we were sitting around Philly losing our minds.”

The Districts are currently putting the finishing touches on a new album which will be released later this year via Fat Possum records. Next month, they’ll begin playing those songs live for the first time at select shows around SXSW, before heading on an April headline run. A European tour will follow in May including a stop at The Great Escape Festival, and a London show at The Dome on May 23rd.
