The El Mansouris – The Greys

The El Mansouris are likely the only band ever to have headlined the 9:30 Club before actually publishing a single song. The band, composed of Alex Braden, Drew Hagelin, Fiona Kohrman, Margot MacDonald and Sam Raymond, have buzzed about DC playing shows for a couple of years now, teasing an album that is finally almost here thanks to DZ Tapes and Babe City Records. Sadly, the self-titled album‘s release also brings the band’s demise, as members move away and onto other projects. Their last hurrah is this Friday at Smith Public Trust, along with the swan song of another much hyped band, The Young Rapids. Watch bassist Drew Hagelin’s video for the single “The Greys” and catch this band one last time.

The El Mansouris – Walden (NPR Tiny Desk submission)

Here’s a band that came out of nowhere, quite literally. The El Mansouris, composed of Alex Braden, Drew Hagelin, Fiona Kohrman, Margot MacDonald and Sam Raymond, just started their social media accounts in mid January and made a lasting first impression with their NPR Tiny Desk contest entry, this live version of “Walden” with lots of great drumming. Get in on the ground floor and keep your eyes peeled for their debut show soon.
