Don’t Sleep on The Americans Latest EP “Strays,” Out Now

Following the triumphant release of “Stand True” in 2022, The Americans, an illustrious Los Angeles ensemble, returns with their latest EP, “Strays,” an emotionally charged masterpiece that stands as their most spirited work yet.

The band’s unique songwriting approach infuses each note with profound emotion, crafting powerful chord progressions that brim with passion and sentiment. “Strays” is a heartfelt journey through life’s highs and lows, expertly balancing nostalgia and yearning for brighter days.

From the Americana-rock ballad “When You Get Back” to the uplifting “Land of the Free,” the EP showcases The Americans’ influence. Frontman Patrick Ferris, in harmony with inspired percussion and invigorating bass, finds solace and hope in every lyric.

The band’s impressive body of work has caught the attention of stars like Nick Cave, Lucinda Williams, Ashley Monroe, and Devendra Banhart. They’ve shared stages with Ryan Bingham, collaborated with Jack White and T Bone Burnett, and joined Nas, Elton John, and Alabama Shakes in the PBS/BBC series American Epic. Their music has graced The Late Show (CBS) and various film soundtracks.

The trio, comprised of Patrick Ferris (vocals/guitar), Zac Sokolow (guitar), and Jake Faulkner (bass), infuses fervor into every track, notably in the cinematic “Kingdom.” With commanding vocals and explosive guitar work, this song exudes empowerment.

“Strays” explores the interplay between sorrow and optimism, delivering a passionately raw and stripped-down EP that showcases Ferris’ powerful vocals. It’s a hauntingly beautiful musical journey, available on all major digital platforms.
