The Dig announce You and I EP, stream the title track

on September 27, 2013, 10:40am


Just four months removed from their Tired Hearts EP, NYC rockers The Dig will release a new EP, You and I, on October 22nd via Buffalo Jump Records. The five-track effort was recorded at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT alongside producer Greg Giorgio (whose assisted on LPs from The National, Interpol, and Tokyo Police Club).

“Over this last winter, we entrenched ourselves in our basement and wrote as much as we could,” said guitarist/vocalist David Baldwin. “We wrote most of the songs on this EP during that time, which we feel gives it kind of a dark and wintery vibe.”

For a burst of winter in September, the band’s unveiled the quasi-title track “You and I Lost Control”. With its lush drumming, falsetto harmonies, and reverb-heavy piano, the track certainly paints a cold and dreary scene, like watching the snow fall in slow-motion from your darkened apartment. Even with its icy tendencies, there’s subtle cracks of warmth (a stray guitar chord here, the whole outro) that demonstrates there’s real heart glowing under the exterior. Listen in below.

You and I EP Tracklist:
01. Cold Afternoon
02. Tired Hearts
03. You And I Lost Control
04. Our Hearts Were Wrapped In Ice
05. Made My Bed
06. So Alone

In support of the EP, the band will be on tour from early October through mid-November, including a slot at Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful Festival. Consult the full schedule below.
