Seattle indie pop/alt band The National Honor Society have unleashed their new single “In Your Eyes” and its accompanying video.
It’s the first taste of their second album, To All The Distance Between Us, out this spring via Shelflife Records. Get it here.
Commenting on the track, lead singer/songwriter Coulter Leslie says:
“In Your Eyes” aligns itself with other pop songs throughout history that have introduced their political messaging obliquely, rather than with a sledgehammer to the head. Too often, the melody gets lost behind the message being shouted at top volume. NHS songs seek a balance between the two, and this first single reflects our efforts to do so.”
National Honor Society is:
Coulter Leslie (Lead vocals, guitars), Jerry Peerson (Lead guitar, backing vocals) Andrew Gaskin (Bass, backing vocals), and Will Hallauer (Drums).
Formed in Seattle, WA, The National Honor Society released their debut EP ‘All Change’ in 2017, charting at No.19 on influential New York critic Jack Rabid’s Big Takeover. Their well-received debut album ‘To All the Glory We Never Had’, arrived in 2020 via Chien Lunatique Records.
Having received critical acclaim in their hometown for their magnetic live performances, the band have performed at a number of key venues in Seattle and the US, including the famous ‘Crocodile’, one-time home to Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
