TVD Premiere: Genuine Leather, “Feel It” / “My Life Is In Your Hands”

Spearheaded by Austin-based song man Chris Galis, indie rock outfit Genuine Leather blend Texas barroom crunch with Beatlesque seventh chord bliss.

Originally formed as a studio project, Galis had to hustle up a sextet of Austin virtuosos once his debut tracks caught on with local promoters. 2 EPs, 3 LPs, and dozens of B-Sides later, the band is now releasing a retrospective of their work entitled 2011-2019 Demos, Singles and Live.

It’s a stunning album, full of little innovative garage rock nuggets that chart the creative trajectory of the band. Topping off the thoughtfully compiled collection is a pair of new, unreleased tracks that we are thrilled to premiere at TVD today.

“Feel It” and “My Life Is In Your Hands” boast a more refined sound that conjures up the recent work of Spoon, Mac Demarco, and Nick Lowe, while retaining Genuine Leather’s ramshackle appeal.

A sign of good things to come from a band that has already delivered on the promise of their hype. 2011-2019 Demos, Singles and Live arrives in stores this Friday.
