Upcoming Release: STELLA ELLA OLA – Stella Ella Ola 2

July 27, 2012

In one of the quickest EP turnarounds I think I’ve ever seen, recent scene champions STELLA ELLA OLA have announced the release of their second EP, appropriately titled Stella Ella Ola 2! This 3-song album picks up where the first one left off, with lots of group vocals, jangly guitars and just general good-time summer vibes.

The album will drop on Tuesday, July 31st on the band’s Bandcamp, and if you’re interested in hearing a sample, we’ve got an extra special Indie Machine premiere for you; check out the advance stream of album closer Pressure Points below!

If you’re hungry for more and just can’t wait until Tuesday, the band also released a music video for album opener Summerette recently, check it out here.

Keep your eye on these guys, they’re ambitious and like to put on a fun show – half of them are from HOLLERADO, so they come from a good pedigree. No word yet on the next TO show, but we heartily recommend you hit it!
