Exclusive Premiere + Ticket Giveaway: Mainland


Fresh off a January residency at the LES’ Pianos, Mainland is ready to release the EP Shiner, a refreshingly poppy set of four songs recorded in Austin with the help of Spoon’s Jim Eno. Every song is punchy and high-energy, like the video we’re premiering today for the EP’s opener “Savant.”

After the jump, check out their brand new video and find out how to win a pair of tickets to their EP release show on March 7 at the The Studio at Webster Hall.

To win tickets to the band’s 3/7 EP release show, follow these simple steps:

1. Get out of whatever social media-free cave you’re living in and get a Twitter account. If you have one already, why are you still reading this step? Jeez.

2. FOLLOW us @soundofthecity !!!!

3. Tweet “#ShinerEP” at @soundofthecity

4. Rinse and repeat.

5. Wait patiently for us to choose a winner at random.

Mainland’s EP is out now, digitally. Their release show for the accompanying vinyl takes place on March 7 at The Studio at Webster Hall. 8:00 p.m., $12.
