Though The Ironclads are on an official hiatus from performing at the moment, that doesn’t mean the band isn’t still hard at work on their quirky, catchy, character-driven pop songs. During the brief week in December that guitarist and vocalist Jamie Cotton was back in Seattle, the band not only played three shows–they also wrote a brand new song (that rivals their delightful best) and recorded a handful of new demos. We’re thrilled that The Ironclads have let us debut two of these new tunes for your listening and downloading pleasure.
After seeing “Emily” performed live once, the strains of the chorus were the first things I heard in my head as I woke up for the next few days. By the third Ironclads’ show that week, I was singing along to every word.
If you’ve been in the front row with us at an Ironclads show over the past year, “iii” will probably sound familiar. We’re just so glad the band took the time to record another one of our favorites.
