Central New Jersey’s Working Class Hussys are the hook-heavy Americana/rock band that’s redefining roots music. Led by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ian Patrick Gentles, the band puts out a sound that blends soaring harmony vocals, crunchy guitars, and big choruses into music no other group in the genre could make.

Working Class Hussys bloom with a majestic, classic sound on the expansive new single “Elaine”. Sounds soar up into the heavens. A clear love for the psychedelic informs the entirety of the experience. By far the highlight comes from the soothing, smooth lived-in vocals that adorn the piece. With so much hope infused into the sound they embark on a wonderful winding journey.

For Ian, it all started at the age of 7 when his aunt signed him up for guitar lessons after he took an interest in an old, beat up guitar his aunt had lying around. He kept with those lessons for the next decade, which involved learning how to sight-read music and becoming a classically trained musician. He moved to Philadelphia and then Boston, where he started a band called ‘Uncle Butch’ with his brother. Uncle Butch relocated to New York City in the early ’90s where they gained popularity performing every night along Bleeker Street and the East Village.

Their lyrics have a poetry about them, ones that tell stories and set the moods for these atmospheric drifting compositions. So much color gets poured into them showing off their impeccable taste. Great exquisite detail enters into the fray with true vigor on the gigantic scope of “Elaine,” making it a standout track as Working Class Hussys lead us into the New Year.
