The Districts are a band that exists in the moment. Described by close friends and girlfriends as a well oiled machine, filthily cult like, and also “normal dudes.”
The Philadelphia four-piece channels its long-forged bonds into visceral, explosive genre blurring music. Informed equally by arrangements and dynamics, and a focus on lyrics, they take inspiration from a broad range of sounds and places. They are constantly evolving and hard to pin down.
From their self released LP “Telephone,” to their 2015 label debut LP “A Flourish and a Spoil,” The Districts keep at work touring and recording. Formed in 2009, they have been going strong for quite a while now. An anonymous insider report claims they have recorded a new album and it is more realized and in your face than ever before. Be on the lookout.
Quote from Robby on 'Ordinary day':
"Ordinary Day deals with a sort of personal alienation and the realization that you and the world you've existed in have changed. Sort of the feeling of coming through a tunnel and having no way of relating to things in the same way as before. It was written in late summer/early fall and came together quite naturally....Personal lives were in flux and we were sitting around philly losing our minds."
