MUSIC | The rising indie rockers are set to release their sophomore album on July 21st
Some songs are so poignant they deserve a revisit.
This was Basement Revolver's logic for re-imagining their breakout single "Johnny" as "Johnny Pt. 2." Strung along by strong guitar and a knack for singing to the heartbroken, the three piece band––frontwoman Chrisy Hurn, bassist/synth player Nimal Agalawatte and drummer Brandon Munro––describes themselves as an introspective indie rock band on their Bandcamp. After releasing a stunning self-titled debut dubbed by several music blogs as the best of 2016, the band is getting ready to release Agatha, a sophomore EP that's sure to pack a punch if "Johnny Pt. 2" is any indication.
We caught up with Hurn to talk about the band's process, "Johnny Pt. 2," and who exactly Agatha is.

Chef Paul Wahlberg always knows when his brother, Donnie Wahlberg, is in town. How? A mass of fans will turn up to their Wahlburgers restaurant chain, signaling that the New Kids on the Block singer is on his way!
"I know Donnie's coming because the Blockheads come beforehand," Paul tells us. "The message gets out there, everyone comes and that unity is amazing."
Donnie and Paul teamed up with actor brother Mark Wahlberg to launch their first Wahlburgers in Massachusetts in 2011, and the business, now global, was also the focus of reality TV series, Wahlburgers.
