Empty Country “Ultrasound”

If you’ve been missing Cymbals Eat Guitars, there is good news for you. Lead singer/songwriter, Joseph D’Agostino has a new project called Empty Country who are preparing to release their debut album next year on Tiny Engines. For now, they have a digital single called “Ultrasound.” Behind a wall-of-sound, the screamy vocals blend into the mix. D’Agostino said of the track, “My sister-in-law Robin was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in the summer of 2015. She is now NED (No Evidence of Disease!) and has been for more than three years. But whenever my wife Rachel goes in for her biannual examination and has imaging done, we are always pretty on-edge, to say the least. This song is about a bleak and scary week in January 2018 while we were waiting on a biopsy report following a suspicious-looking ultrasound. It features two of my heroes: Rachel on the high harmony and Charles Bissell of The Wrens on the low harmony.”
