While digging for new music the other night, I came across a four-piece band from North Carolina named Ernie. Their demo figi afterglow was recorded and mixed by founding member Lamont Brown (vox-bass) in his bedroom and was released back in January 2015. Since then, Ernie has put out another EP Dog Park, but it was figi afterglow that initially drew me to the band. Lamont and company instantly had me with their groovy bedroom indie style. With a driving bass rhythms and well-timed lyrical placement, figi afterglow has got me hooked.
