Memphis based indie rock band The Band CAMINO made waves with their 2016 debut EP, which landed them on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 Playlist with the hit track “The Black and White.”

The band, which formed just about two years ago, consists of Andrew Isbell (drummer), Jeffery Jordan (lead singer), Graham Rowell (bassist) and Spencer Stewart (guitarist, pianist, synth and vocalist). The four of them met as music students at the University of Memphis and ended up creating a sound that they like to describe as “rock music with ‘80s production.”

After a couple months passed, the band’s six released tracks continued to receive impressive streaming numbers. As they reached about 2 million streams, they released the single “Who Says We’re Through” to get fans excited for their second EP, Heaven, which will be released on June 2nd.

While the band has been experimenting with acoustic, pop and rock sounds on their songs, “Who Says We’re Through” is in a league of its own, with guitar riffs and electronic beats reminiscent to The 1975 and even vocal similarities to those of Matty Healy in “Robbers.”

While the band name was originated quite arbitrarily when the band members came across an El Camino car, they later discovered that “camino” is Spanish for “path.” “We chose the band path,“ Jordan said. "We’re going down the band road.”
