Atlanta band Balkans readies pummeling 7-inch single, 'Edita V,' with LP to follow

Fact: Sometimes, pummeling guitars are the answer. Second fact: That’s exactly what Balkans offers.

The Atlanta band has been kicking around the local scene since, well, elementary school, really, where the foursome met. A handful of singles on local labels has led to a self-titled full-length debut due May 10 on Double Phantom Records, but first, the band is putting out a 7-inch single, “Edita V,” on Feb. 22.

It’s a knotty song, stacked with rugged guitars and a pounding rhythm topped off with yowling vocals for a sound that makes the band seem older than its members’ tender years. Also, My Old Kentucky Blog yesterday premiered this video for “Cave,” the b-side.
