Live Photos: Behind the Scenes with Eisley

With last month’s fifth LP, I’m Only Dreaming, Eisley introduced a new soundscape of taut pop wound around the buoyant melodies of Sherri DuPree-Bemis. For the record, the Tyler, Texas group went through a new transformation that saw former members part for new projects, leaving Sherri and cousin Garron Dupree to helm the studio. Their efforts result in some of the best hooks provided by the outfit in years, including “Defeatist,” a lilting confessional punctuated by winding, organic songcraft. Live, the pair is joined by Remington DuPree on drums, Jedidiah Lachmann on keys and Poema’s Elle Puckett on lead guitar and vocals. Paste caught up with the band in Columbus to photograph their soundcheck and vibrant live show, seen in the gallery above. (Extra points if you find the Harry Potter tattoo.) Eisley is currently touring throughout March, with a show at the Troubadour in Hollywood tonight. Check out their Paste Studios session from last month.
