San Antonio, Texas’ El Campo is an alt-country band that blends emo/high lonesome country vocals with killer harmonies, fast-flowing banjo rolls and a bit of steel guitar for good measure. The band formed in 2013, but they sound like they’ve been playing together for 10 years as they are a super tight and accomplished group of musicians. Jerid Reed Morris’ vocals are superb and memorable, making for a great frontman.
El Campo is releasing a new 7-inch EP, “Skinny Kids/Sloe-Eyed”, in January and heading out on a national tour in February. Based on the new song we premiere today, “Skinny Kids”, El Campo should be facing full houses and a packed festival schedule come summer.
