Song Premiere: Southwork – “Trapped”

Two years ago, from the ashes of Fat City Reprise and Distant Orange, seven musicians came together to form a band called Southwork. Led by singer-songwriter Mike Vivas, the group is now set to self-release their debut LP, Arise, on December 11th. The septet combines classic four-part harmonies with a trio of horns to create a familiar but unique pop-rock sound, coated with a small dose of goofiness that is easy to enjoy. For those who like musical comparisons, I reluctantly ask you to imagine a combination of The Zombies and Cake.

The band will celebrate the album’s release with a headlining show at Johnny Brenda’s on Thursday, December 13th; tickets are available here. As we await the release and that show, we’re excited to share with you track three’s “Trapped.” Stream it below and pre-order the album (available on limited edition blue vinyl) here.
