Indie-pop quintet Eisley is a family band from Tyler, Texas — three sisters, a brother, and a cousin — and on March 1, the twentysomething rockers of the DuPree clan will drop their third album, The Valley, via Equal Vision Records. Hear an exclusive stream of the entire album below!

The album, their first since 2007’s Combinations, chronicles the personal hardships, aka “The Valleys,” of the DuPrees, including a failed marriage and a broken engagement.

“There’s a sense of self-empowerment in the lyrics, and sometimes downright desperation,” says Stacy DuPree, the band’s lead singer and songwriter alongside her sister Sherri. “I couldn’t help but want to throw myself into these songs and try to make a point about letting something very painful go, and in the process gaining strength and being able to walk away.”

The result: 11 hyper-melodic indie-pop anthems that nod to moody ’70s soft-rockers Fleetwood Mac. The songs swell with dramatic layers of piano, violin, electric guitar lines, and Sherri and Stacy’s intertwining and harmonious wails.
