Derby has enjoyed a great bit of success since the release of Posters Fade in 2008. Their indie-pop style has been deemed just cool enough to have their single â€œIf Ever Thereâ€™s A Reasonâ€ featured on a couple of Ford Explorer commercials. It is no real surprise that this Portland-based trio has gained a great amount of mass appeal. They are just so damn lovable!
And the best news yet: the boys are back! On February 15th Derby released a new EP, Madeline. The title track, â€œMadelineâ€, from the EP kicked things into gear with some of the sale old good spirited wisdom from 2008, but here we see the band moving towards a bit more eclectic sound that hits a bit harder than we are used to.
But not too hard, of course. That just wouldnâ€™t be Derby now would it? No, here we can simply hear the growth of a band that has more potential than they probably even know what to do with. But, they are working really hard at getting it out there.
â€œMadelineâ€ is available as a free download from the Derbyâ€™s website.
