NYCS First Impression: Josh Abbott Band ‘Catching Fire’ EP

Catching Fire Josh Abbott Band

The summer of 2019 is certainly a great one for lovers of country music. Today, on June 28th, a country music favorite, the Josh Abbott Band released their newest EP, Catching Fire and it is sure to add some extra heat to your summer playlist.

The four-song EP has a fun and positive feel to it, giving off nothing but good vibes and feelings of new beginnings, while still staying true to their roots and their signature sound. Featuring their already widely received single ‘Little More You’, songs like “Catching Fire”, “Surprise Surprise” and “Oughta Get Drunk” will make you want to lay back, relax and be your best self while at the same time let loose and party.

Their single ‘Little More You’ is accompanied by a story-telling music video starring Jep and Jess Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” as the couple in love, following them around on a beautiful sunny day as they enjoy themselves and the finer things in life, such as whiskey, blue skies, and the beach.

One of the most liked comments on the video reads, “I feel like you guys just reinvented yourselves with that classic JAB sound, but with a 2019 swag to it. So happy to hear this sound from you guys again!”

Produced by Marshall Altman, Catching Fire brings a sense of nostalgia and return back to their foundation and roots, and the sound that made them who they are, while at the same time focusing on the theme that as old chapters are being closed, new ones are ‘catching fire.’ Said best in ‘Surprise Surprise’, ‘I’ve done a lot of things wrong but at least something turned out right!”
