Aquitaine Background Info
We set out after inquiring “what would happen if Ian Curtis shared a prison cell with Mick Jones?” “What happens when you cross-pollinate The Jam with the Kinks?” “And what if Echo and the Bunny men would have been born in a city on the Mississippi rather than in a city on the Mersey?” We pondered those questions, and wrote out the answers in the form of songs. We soon started playing those songs very loudly in clubs in the St. Louis area, immediately attracting a limited but loyal following. (via Aquitaine’s Facebook Page)
Aquitaine makes some pretty cool music. My favorite song is When The Lights Are On. It has the kind of Punk sound that is reminiscent of Rancid. Also a big fan of Tongue Lines. It has a nice beat to it, good harmonies, and it kind of reminds me of something but for the life of me, I just can’t figure it out. No matter, it is a great song, as are the rest of the songs for you to listen to below via ReverbNation. Whenever we can get pictures of the actual band members we’ll put them up here, along with a little more of our thoughts. Until then, enjoy some good music! They also have a few live versions of some songs available to download, so be sure to get those if you dig Aquitaine.
