Richmond’s Citrus City Records is on a steady streak of discovering the hidden gems in Virginia’s vast pool of musicians and bands. Fat Spirit and Lance Bangs are just a few of the greats that have released solid tunes off the local indie label, and underground Charlottesville trio, ING, is the latest group to release an EP through them.
This experimental indie rock band, featuring Hannah Balesi (guitarist/vocals), Garen Dorey (bassist), and Will Mullany (drums), have an interesting sound. You can’t really pigeonhole them into any one genre or lump them in with a lot of other indie bands, and that’s what I like about them. Its hazy and minimal, but with some melodic guitars for a jangle/slacker pop vibe. If you’re into Beach House, you will probably like ING.
ING will deliver their debut five-track EP, which was recorded at Gatehouse Studios, on cassette on Sept. 30. Luckily, the band has given RVA Mag and music lovers a little sneak peek of what’s to come on their record with the newly-released single, “Dust.” This song goes off in all different directions, Balesi pulling you in with her vocals, and Mullany keeping you on your toes with the switch up of the drums.
