.Bylines Release 'Summit Road'

Local indie rockers Bylines officially release their debut album this Friday. Summit Road is a seven-song set of laid-back grooves, echoing open chords and intertwining guitar leads. The record’s lead single, “Easy To Do,” vaults over the kind of self-absorption posturing as sassy self-awareness in the standard down-and-out rock & roll ballad—as the track’s narrator owns up to his apathy: “It’s easy to do,” he sings, before shrugging in resignation. “It’s easier not to do.” One imagines he could be talking about apologizing, putting down the bottle or just being more present. The lyric’s opacity will likely mean different things to different listeners, a hallmark of any great pop song.

Fri, ‘Summit Road’
