Guns of Navarone @ KUT 9/4
Austin locals Guns of Navarone take their “Austin locals” label very seriously. They’ve got a sound blend that’s distinctly Austin – it’s an alt-country/pop rock sound that is a fantastic blend of old and new Austin music. Easily comparable to something like classic Old 97s, they’ve also got a sort of punk energy that keeps their sound fresh. Having formed in the spring of 2009, the group released a three track EP and quickly became a favorite in town. They released their first full-length album in November last year to positive reviews across the board. Check out Guns of Navarone’s live performance from their visit to the shiny new Studio 1a.
