Approaching Troy – Sparta (This Isn’t Over)

Long Island alternative rock band Approaching Troy have never shied away from the heritage and history of their local music scene, and their latest EP, Best Intentions – out August 19th – will be no different.

Give a listen to the EP’s first single, “Sparta (This Isn’t Over)” to hear for yourself as they look to follow up 2015’s Dear Sadie with a bang.

[This] is the song on the EP that really shows the best combination of where we’re headed as a band as well as where we’ve been. The fine details of this track are a strong example of the technical aspects behind our Best Intentions EP that really shine through in this single. This song represents both the softer side that we never really shy away from, and the edgier feel we’ve been embracing more recently. We weren’t afraid to experiment with different sounds, effects and instruments that really helped bring this song to the next level. – Jake Salazar, lead vocals
