Sometime in February are an instrumental, progressive rock project from Carolina-based guitarist Tristan Auman (The Unapologetic Kind, ex-Aim High). A solo venture has been a long time coming for the 22-year-old, having played throughout the southeast U.S. with multiple bands through the years. Sometime in February’s forthcoming debut EP, Here Goes, out October 15 via Friend Club Records.
“Sure Thing,” the first single from the release, showcases the band’s ability to marry the melodies of pop punk together with a metallic edge in a way rarely done in the post-rock world. Fans of Russian Circles and By The End Of Tonight are going to have a new favorite here.
“’Sure Thing’ was the result of me attempting to write a simple song,” says Auman. “Something that didn’t take itself too seriously; no unnecessary tangents or three minute interludes. There’s enough of that on the rest of the EP! What I came up with was something that felt carefree and fun, yet still maintained the same character and integrity as the other tracks.”
