JORDAN GALLAND Releases TO THE TOP EP
Featuring Sean Lennon, Sam Koppelman and
A Whole Lot of 808 Percussion
To The Top (Uncensored)
New York, NY – Jordan Galland will release To The Top, his third solo release in as many years, this summer via Slush Puppy Music. A follow up to his sophomore solo album, Search Party, Galland looked to the past for inspiration, pulling from a sound similar to that of his ’98 band Dopo Yume; commissioning former band mates Sean Lennon for bass guitar and Sam Koppelman for percussion on select tracks.
The four-song EP showcases a blend of sunny pop hooks and cloudy lyrics – think John Hughes meets John Waters. From the love-letter homage in “New York Romance,” to the pop chord progression and forthright lyrics of “To the Top,” the EP combines city-kid bravado with a relatable farewell to youth.
