Little Tybee announces tour, releases 'Empire State'

Exciting news out of the Little Tybee camp today. The folk troubadours unleashed a live, Red Bull-funded recording of its latest single "Empire State" and announced a lengthy US tour that brings the Atlanta-natives all the way to the West coast and back.

"Empire State" is a perfect example of why Little Tybee has continued to be one of the most innovative groups to come out of Atlanta in recent years. The track starts off with Tybee's trademark delicate string arrangements guided by vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott's fragile crooning. Halfway through the familiar strings drop out and the group jumps into a minor psychedelic synth freakout that zigzags between a dizzying array of sounds. The group's technical mastery allows for a tight control of the song's intensity through subtlety and harmonic expertise.

Check out Little Tybee's understated talent for yourself when it stops by the 529 on June 28.

With New Madrid and Giant Giants. 9 pm. $8. 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769.
