Eleventyseven has been rocking around the Upstate since 2002 with their usual, fun brand of power pop, but with their latest EP, Attack of The Mountain Medley, they implement a folk and bluegrass feel to it. Now, power pop is in no way my usual style but Elevenseven’s new style on this album really caught my attention. I would have no problem listening to them while driving around the mountains on a Sunday afternoon.
The second song on Attack of The Mountain Medley, “All The Doubt In Town,” is a sweet little love song with a heavy bluegrass influences from the guitar solo to the fast paced drums. It is pretty obvious to see through this song that these boys grew up as southern gentlemen. It’s the typical boy meets girl story but this boy is different, the protagonist will do anything and everything for his lady.
Track four, “I’m A Mormon,” takes a whole different spin going from sweet to humorous. They reference Transformers, Battle Galactica, Star Wars, and even Will Smith. Like the rest of the EP, this song follows the same folk-bluegrass-rock sound. This song is a silly and fun song about being a Mormon in a very strange world. You’ll just have to listen yourself and find out what I mean.
The last song on the album is titled “Appalachian Wine.” I’m going to go ahead and tell you, this one was my favorite. It starts out with soft piano and strong violin. This is a song you were meant to clap to. It’s a sweet story about Mother Earth and Father Time falling in love. There are so many cool metaphors to the elements while also personifying them as the children in the song. Over all this song has a lovely story with great harmonizing vocals and a prominent folk sound.
Eleventyseven made a smooth transition from power pop to folk rock with this EP and I really look forward to hearing more of this style from them. Check out the previously mentioned “And I’m A Morman” below!
