Pre-Release Review – The Washboard Union

By: Remington Fioraso

Album: In My Bones
Download Link:
Genre: Country
Release Date: July 10, 2015

The Washboard Union are a Vancouver-based country band.  The group is formed by David Roberts, Brett Ellis, Chris “Dunner” Duncombe, Craig McCaul, Evan Bates, and Brendan Krieg.  They released their first album entitled “The Washboard Union” in 2012.

Their latest release, an EP, is the group’s first major label release.   On July 10, 2015, The Washboard Union will release, ‘In My Bones’, via Warner Music Canada and Slaight Music.  The EP contains six tracks.

The release was my first introduction to the artist.  After listening to In My Bones, I definitely wish I heard them sooner.  Upon hearing the album, it has been constantly on repeat for me.  There are not any particular songs that stand out for me, all of them are good.  It is lacking in filler tracks.

The songs are simply well orchestrated with their combinations of instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics.  The only negative thing for the album is its length.  Although recognizing it is an EP, I wish it was longer.

If you are a country fan, I would highly recommend picking up In My Bones by The Washboard Union.  If you are already a fan of the band, you will enjoy it.  If you are yet to be introduced to the Washboard Union, the release is a good starting point.

Rating: 4.5/5
