Don't Call Me Shirley Drops Their Debut EP

The new EP release from the Philadelphia based progressive emo rock band Don't Call Me Shirley pushes the envelope and produces some incredibly in-depth rock songs complete with emotion and a painful relatability. The first of the two tracks "Tired" engulfs you in a swirl of textured guitars and keys combined with an endlessly catchy chorus. The second of the two is called "Ashes". This track starts in a bit more spacey in an alt-rock way. Delayed guitars harmonize into a gorgeous soundscape of melody and rock. The singing on this record is excellent but it's the guitar work and songwriting that sticks with you at times. A definite musical journey, the Tired / Ashes EP is a strong debut from Don't Call Me Shirley.
