The Minnesota-based quintet Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra unveil another layer of their creative genius with the single “And The Walls Have Ears”. Comprised of members Eli Hoehn (banjo, vocals), Jason Helder (guitar, vocals), Kelly Kroeker (vocals), Travis Domeier (electric guitar), Kelly Coyle (bass), and Damen Price (drums), Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra have an eclectic sound that is founded upon their fusion of blues, bluegrass, folk, jazz, and rock music. The group’s latest album so aptly named A Universe Parallel to Our Own conceptualizes life through the fictional character of Captain Gravitone in a way that speaks to us all.
And The Walls Have Ears opens with a charming groove founded upon organic instrumentation that melts into a cabaret-style vibe. The track hosts an array of instrumentation, some of which are featured as solos in the latter parts of the song. And The Walls Have Ears possesses a theme that coincides well with its title, which is brought to life by a superb vocal performance. And The Walls Have Ears by Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra is as memorable as it is nostalgic.
