Chandler Hoofert, (Lead Vocals/Bass/Guitar) Michael Shular, (Backing Vocals/Guitar) Charlie Horn, (Drums) Tanner Prince (Backing Vocals/Keyboard) are fun, fusion rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio who recently released the Now She's Ready EP. The band members have known each other since middle school and took some time to decide to become a band but some things are worth the wait.
Now She's Ready EP by Inglorious Neighbors is funky and contagious. It brings forth an energy of pure unadulterated fun. The first song "Show Me The Funk" gives you a taste of the band’s cohesion. The main vocalist has a Stevie Wonder like vibe and the band follows closely the high caliber musical taste that is being represented.
Next up, the song “Termination” carries a bit more darkness. Seems like The Black Keys had an influence here. You can feel the rhythm move from the bottom of your soul up and outward. There is an old timey muffled sound to the whole piece. " I walk alone in my head, and for a time I seem dead." This more gritty song still keeps an upbeat tempo.
Drumsticks are quickly rolling as the guitar has sleight licks that infiltrate in and out. “Mary The Madame” starts out with some open-ended guitar fancies. The simplicity of the instrumentation is a story in and of itself with its slow moving proclamations.
There is a lot of room for interpretation and the singer’s gorgeous voice. There is a wide array of space for a solo guitar moment here. "Marry the madame the whispers so scary onto your head." This whole band is really advanced for being in high school. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something with soul to listen to in the wintertime.
