After a string of singles, Weston Estate is proving they're the real deal this week with their debut Maggie Valley EP, which is out today via Arista Records.
Of course, the six-track effort includes their standout single "Stoked," which we recognized as an instant jam, but the full project is proof of their staying power, and we anticipate they'll be delivering the goods for some time to come.
“Maggie Valley was the one place that was a constant for us throughout our entire artistic progression," says the band. "Over the course of the past few years, we’ve been growing as people and as musicians, and this EP is like a time capsule that shows how far we’ve really come. The project is an eclectic grab bag of sounds and melodies. There’s something for everyone on this EP, and we’re putting these songs out to immortalize this chapter in a journey that’s just begun.”
The band is made up of longtime best friends Srikar Nanduri (guitar), Manas Panchavati (vocals), Tanmay Joshi (vocals), Abhi Manhass (production, bass), and Marco Luka (vocals), all of whom are currently college students who have known each other since they were 14. They called themselves "Weston Estate" in jest for an affluent neighborhood adjacent to their hometown of Cary, North Carolina.
