Influenced by Texas & it's diverse music. The Staylyns' eight-song EP "Sex & Coffee" is an enticing blend of rock & blues. Raw guitar riffs, anchored by hard-hitting drums & thick bass lines, partner with strong vocals & tight harmonies to create an appealing Americana sound.
The title track "Sex & Coffee" blends a blues guitar riff with a pop melody and sultry, female lead vocal. Clever lyrics & a catchy hook create and immensely singable and unforgettable tune. After a sexy start, the collection shifts into high gear with powerful cuts like "Very Next Disco," "Never Let Go" & "Run Around," with the pace slowing for the heart-wrenching ballad "Gone Too Soon" written for Johnny's younger sister, Tammy Lyn. The song is a powerful ode to those left behind, with haunting harmonies and a wailing guitar solo.
A powerful EP with cuts from all three songwriters in the band. "Sex & Coffee" has a broad appeal. Anyone who listens is sure to find a least one song to add to their favorite playlist.
