Listening to El Ten Eleven
's sweeping track "Yellow Bridges," it almost seems impossible that such a full sound can come from just two people. Add to that the fact that this electro-tinged number has been crafted free of computerized help, and you've got yourself a deeply felt, incredibly organic approach to electronically enhanced music.
Taken off the duo's new album, Transitions
, this track captures the joy and nostalgia that comes with returning home. "I grew up in Pittsburgh and no matter where you were driving, you'd cross a bridge," explains drummer Tim Fogarty. "This is our dedication to my hometown." Bassist/Guitarist Kristian Dunn agrees, "It's been a long journey for Tim from Pittsburgh to California and through all of the transitions lately in his life, thus the breadth and depth of the song."
We're thinking it's an appropriate track to send you off into the holiday weekend. And thanks to the band, you can grab it as a free download to take with you as you make your own trek across bridges and freeways. Should you have a long ride ahead of you, though, we'd suggest grabbing Transitions
to keep you company along the way!
