Sir Sly Bring Brand-New Album to The Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday

July 10th, 2017

Singer Landon Jacobs, keyboardist Jason Suwito and drummer Hayden Coplen formed the alternative-rock trio Sir Sly (above, performing “You Haunt Me” on Conan) five years ago in Los Angeles. Their first full-length, You Haunt Me (stream it below), came out in 2014. The band “lays down a strong foundation, announcing their presence with 11 somber yet danceable earworms that are sure to set the hype machine on overload now that listeners actually know who is making the music and anticipate the follow-up,” according to Glide Magazine. That anticipated follow-up, Don’t You Worry, Honey (stream it below), arrived just a few weeks ago, and Atwood Magazine immediately named it one of the best albums of the year, noting that they’re “expanding their musical palette through a daringly diverse, yet surprisingly concise set of songs that stays faithful to, and builds upon, Sir Sly’s unique blend of electronic, gospel and hip-hop influence.” With a new album comes a new tour, and Sir Sly headline The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. The D.C. trio Shaed opens.
