Eisley’s first album in almost four years is about to be released through Equal Vision Records on March 1st. The album is called The Valley, and this song “Ambulance” is taken from it.

The Valley was recorded at Rosewood Studios in their hometown of Tyler, Texas, with producer/engineers Gary Leach and Austin Deptula (LeAnn Rimes), and mixed by Andy Freeman at Bay Area Tone in San Francisco. The album’s title refers to the emotional turmoil that the DuPree sisters, who front Eisley, experienced as they crafted their third album: Sherri enduring a failed marriage; Chauntelle, a broken engagement; and Stacy, a painful breakup. The only relationship that ended on their terms was the split with Warner Bros. Records, the label that released their first two albums and several EPs. Promising to bring listeners through the band’s darkest and most trying times, “The Valley” reveals their strength, patience and perseverance. On tracks like “Smarter” and “Sad,” there’s a musical aggression and emotional urgency that transports you to the moment they were written, laying bare the open wound of the broken heart. And the chilling album closer, “Ambulance,” is an icy snapshot of the very moment of betrayal and abandonment. Elsewhere, there’s a stately solace in the hopeful “Kind” and whimsical “Mr. Moon,” and buoyant string arrangements decorate opener “The Valley” and “Watch It Die.”

So, it's safe to assume that you don't actually like this kind of music and just wanted to drop the quotes from Sputnik's greatest review ;)

Yeah, that pretty much sums things up. I'll throw in a "Damn, those sisters are hot," too just for good measure.

"Sherri enduring a failed marriage; Chauntelle, a broken engagement; and Stacy, a painful breakup."

"so sherri and bemis broke up i guess, what a shame"

nah, appearantly not. supposedly "the failed marriage" is refering to her brief marriage with Chad Gilbert. As far as I'm aware, the two are still together.

LARGE AMOUNT OF PAPER!

I mean, the song is good, yes, the Christian coffee shop quote is always golden but I was always a "large amount of paper" guy myself...

Then again: "It’s gay, well, maybe they're friends, or, they had sex. Hey, that’s plain wrong, Sounds like so be it, they like it but it doesn’t seem like this way. You must respect the musical lyrics. It is innocent."

I swear, if this band was so talented, I've never live this down. Not that I will anyways but this is one of my most looked forward to releases this year.

They rock but they dream about sunshine, pollen and meadows, so what is Eisley? They rock nonsense. Or, they lyrically nonsense?

Eisley, their music style is what? Charming, cool, holly, grace, magical; they are pop, infused, folk and alternative. So do you believe God? Christianity, fantasy, love, it sounds like angels send you to some forbidden yet friendly places somewhere. The songs are childlike idealisms and quiet optimism, pace onto a sporty authenticity, sexy peace, and lullaby rock, good pop and refreshing alternative. The band takes themselves easy, walks thorough their debut album, it is the ice on the cake. They rock but they dream about sunshine, pollen and meadows, so what is Eisley? They rock nonsense. Or, they lyrically nonsense?

Honestly, so stoked on this. All yeah, paper, more paper.

song is good, Eisley is now so sky rock band, but I must ask..... do they lyrically misleading?

VicariousIntent

Yeah, Max and Sherri are still together, everything is fine there. That's a bit misleading. The failed marriage is definitely referring to her and Chad.
