Please let us introduce you to Oldermost, a phenomenal new band out of Philadelphia which is gearing up to release two singles in the coming month. The first track, “Honey With Tea”, is out now and just spectacular!
“Honey with Tea” highlights the paradoxical blend of neuroticism and mysticism of Oldermost’s lead singer Bradford Bucknum, whose vocal delivery oscillates between semi-theatrical energetic bursts to gentle, sugary crooning. The inclusion of the up-and-coming Philadelphia singer-songwriter Rosali adds a welcomed vocal element to the song too.
The song’s despairing wit and questionable advice buoyantly tumbles over a sea of lush strings provided by the classically trained yet pop-obsessed compositional asset to the band, David Richard. Mike Sobel’s guitar work slides in and out of the steady rhythms of Stephen Robbins’ focused and passionate drumming, and Dan Wolgemuth’s unique and melodic bass playing.
