SSG Music is happy to present the premiere of The Cellar Door’s new five-song EP, Flightlessness. You can stream the full EP below.

There are some voices and sounds that can instantly transport you back in time, to a different era and period. The vocals, cello and pings from the piano emitting from The Cellar Door displace the listener to an earlier time. Their vocals radiate a vintage vibe that is truly unique among the chamber-pop genre. The harmonies are complemented by male and female voices, the range most exquisitely noted in “Silent Avenue” and “Residence Of Rome”.

The Cellar Door’s first release was a two-song single in May 2012, featuring “Spring” and “Ground”. One year later and their newest release Flightlessness features less banjo and more piano, creating a more mature, rounded sound. The sextet have found their sound and grown into it quite nicely.

The band has been making waves around town within the last year, including performances at Bumbershoot and Fremont Abbey’s The Round along with a small tour with Hey Marseilles. With their growing popularity make sure you snag tickets to their Flightlessness release show 5/23 at The Crocodile, with Wayfarer, Dearborn, and Mary Lambert. Tickets available here.
